Early Work and Rustic Furniture

At the Worcester Center for Crafts in Worcester, MA (’98-‘00) I learned to design and build studio furniture. While I don’t currently make studio furniture I’ve included the photos as the pieces illustrate my interest in the sculptural and painted aspects as well as the functional. These pieces are all one of a kind and in my own collection. I do currently make rustic furniture with fabulous slabs of various woods with hardwood saplings for legs and stretchers. Carved elements are added to some rustic pieces. A few examples are included here. I’m happy to make new rustic benches and coffee tables when I have a supply of dry saplings.*

*If you have maple, birch or ash saplings and would like your woods or lot to be thinned, please let me know and I’ll come cut a few (MA south shore area). Saplings have to dry a year for each inch of thickness to be ready for furniture making.
