Big Star Ranch is located in the scenic Sierra Foothills and is the home of Sally Peterson, artist and interior designer. On the ranch is a large old barn, converted to a workshop and studio, where Naked Tree + Funkyard collaborate to create works for residential and commercial projects. Work with us!


From salvage yards and garage sales come many of the raw materials for Funkyard sculptures, home furnishings and design. Inspired in part by the discards of our world, and also by the bounties of nature and beauty at Big Star Ranch, turning junk into treasures is Sally Peterson's passion.
