RARE HAND CRAFTED MODERN FURNITURE FOR THE HOME
I am pleased to offer you a glimpse into my world of making. After 12 years of producing fine hand made modern furniture, I still work alone in a humble old-world style, crafting between 10 and 15 pieces each year.
Mission: To craft rare and exquisite furniture that honors the sculptural properties of the earth’s most beautiful hardwoods. To obsess over detail, beauty and quality while remaining firmly rooted in the ancient craft of joinery.
2016 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Art Award Finalist!
Announced July 12, 2016, I am thrilled to share the news that Lounge Chair No. 2 is named 1 of 5 finalists for this year’s prestigious award. Pictured below, this chair challenges every aspect of what a Nova Scotian Windsor-style chair can be. I am humbled to think that this piece – crafted with committed passion but in near obscurity in my modest shop – could be so well received around the world. Lounge Chair No. 2 is currently at the Fraser Cultural Center in Tatamagouche. As the other finalists will no doubt confirm, the merits of being a Masterworks Finalist go far beyond the monetary; conveying the vital message to the artist that they are on the right path, that their passion is noticed and appreciated. For more details and to see the other finalists’ astounding art, please visit the Masterworks website.
