In 2009, Richard expanded his love for working with wood. He decided to build custom acoustic guitars. All of his fine craftsmanship is completely done by hand. His guitars feature carefully cut and planed sides, tops and bottom, hand-carved necks, custom inlays, and fine finishes. Each one is a one-of-a-kind instrument. Richard uses the name Caston on his hand-crafted guitars, naming them after Marie’s grandfather and their grandson, Caston.
Marie Kluttz is an avid nature photographer and has attended workshops across the country in order to enhance her photography skills. She has participated in The Nature Workshops that were held in Glacier National Park in Montana, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone Park in Wyoming, and the Texas Hill Country workshop in Austin, Texas. In addition, she has attended numerous other training events.
Marie has been a Field Contributor for the Nature Photographer Magazine , and has had several photo-illustrated articles featured in that publication. She has also been featured on the Nature Photographer Magazine web site.
