Story

The name “pochade” derives from the 19th-century French word “pocher,” meaning to sketch. We discovered this exciting piece on our adventure to Marble Canyon, where painter Logan Maxwell Hagege takes his into the field to document the Arizona landscape; in his words, “It’s built very well, and makes the process of painting on location a lot easier.”

They’re handcrafted by painter and woodworker Ben Haggett of Alla Prima Pochade — the frames are made of FAS Select Cherry, while the palette and flat sections are constructed from Baltic Birch. Each box measures 10x12 and includes two removable drawers and a threaded fitting for easy attachment to standard tripods. Incredibly convenient and versatile, take the Pochade Box with you on your next adventure and be ready when inspiration strikes.
