I’m very pleased to be part of The Maine Wood 2020 show, alongside an extremely talented group of makers and artists! The show runs from January 17th to April 8th at the Messler Gallery, Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, 25 Mill Street, Rockport, Maine.
My piece in this juried show is a walnut-seat Windsor high chair. The finish is both natural and painted, to accentuate the unique combination of local materials used to create it. The spindles were hand riven and shaved from ash, the legs are hard maple, the bow is steam bent oak, and the seat is carved walnut.
“Eight Maine woodworkers were honored with awards at the opening of “Maine Wood 2020” Jan. 17. The exhibition is the seventh in a biennial series presented by the Messler Gallery of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship to showcase the breadth, creativity and excellence of wood craftsmanship in Maine. It features furniture, carving, marquetry, turning and sculpture made by 22 Maine artists and artisans, selected from a pool of 76 entries by a distinguished independent jury.”
