Photo of Tom Rauschke at the Xntrix StudioXn-trix is housed in a hand hewn timber barn at the farm home of husband and wife team Tom Rauschke and Kaaren Wiken. The renovated 1860’s barn includes Tom’s woodworker’s studio with a second floor gallery, as well as an enclosure for their pet chickens. In a separate building you can visit the plasma cutting studio where Kaaren creates her metal sculptures. The buildings themselves are surrounded by the Kettle Moraine State Forest, with a dramatic landscape of prairie land and tree savannah. It’s the perfect setting for Kaaren’s life size wildlife sculptures of deer, wolves, turkeys, cranes, and all manner of chickens, cats, opossums, and so many more. The sculptures are unique in that the design components are not welded together, but fit like puzzle pieces. Tom’s intricate wood sculptures are nature inspired and are often lathe turned, cut and carved from the native hardwoods of the Kettle Moraine.
