Wood is a medium in a constant state of change.

Every piece, every board is different. Different species respond in various ways to bending and sculpting.

Creating furniture is like writing a song…

First, there is a spark of inspiration. Inspiration leads to concept, and concept leads to refinement. The studio furniture movement is one grounded in love of design, love of raw materials, and an inherent need to create things of beauty.

Handmade furniture captures a bit of the soul of the maker on the day it was made.

Furniture can posses the cultured subtleties of a well groomed symphony,

Or it can hit you in the face…

like Rock-N-Roll.
