’17 Furniture Design
As an artist and a craftsman, I work hard to develop pieces that speak to both other craftspeople and the general public alike. As a young child, I was always making things; this love slowly transitioned into a love of making things out of wood specifically. While I do experiment with other materials, I am usually led back to wood, largely because of the variation in species, and technical possibilities and challenges of the material. A large part of my process involves researching and experimenting with new and obscure techniques. I enjoy pushing the envelope in the construction of my furniture, and in design more broadly.
Most of my work starts as small sketches or ideas, which I then refine and into loose design through more sketching and small models. My recent pieces have incorporated many bent laminations, a technique that opens a lot of possibilities.
