“Jonathan Otter creates his furniture with meticulous care and astonishing skill…The 22 pieces we own of modern, Nova Scotian work- our only modern pieces, in fact- are all creations of Jonathan Otter’s and they harmonize beautifully with the antiques, reflecting the same warmth of texture and beauty of form so valued in the antiques.” – Nominator for the 2012 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Award.
“Everyone who comes into my home comments on the sideboard but, more importantly, I love it every time I look at it, which is everyday. I love the colour, the grains, the pulls, and even the sound of the doors when they close.”- N.P., Montreal.
“Every time I walk into my bedroom I think, what a beautiful bed and how beautiful the bed has made the room. So thank you for all your skill and hard work. It really is a breathtaking creation.”- S.C., Halifax.
