grown steadily over the past 14 years supplying

In 2010 he received a readers
choice award from Pen World magazine for his
"Tempus" watch pieces pen. This year 2012 he was

Awards in the eco-friendly and mixed media
categories. He has made pens for the White
House and several prominent dignitaries.
1, 2012 Bill Baumback sold Arizona Silhouette to
Barry Gross and BG Artforms LLC. Bill did
a wonderful job creating this company and it is
my belief that with my experience in the wood
working market and the solid foundation Bill
created Arizona Silhouette will only get
stronger! In the coming months the pen
line will be expanded with new products and pen
kits. But for now, I want to continue with
the solid performing products from Berea
Hardwoods and concentrate on extending the good
service Arizona Silhouette has richly deserved!
As Bill would say...I hope you enjoy our website and the items we offer.
