Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Ohiopyle,Pa
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
Kentuck Knob
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I make fine furniture pieces that blend traditional woodworking
techniques with a refined rustic visual language. Every chair or
table utilizes locally collected woods such as lilac, cherry, or oak.
The unique assortment of sizes and shapes that I discover, refines
each chair or table, allowing my pieces to deviate from convention.
This balance of spontaneity and predetermined structure results in a
functional, yet freely organic object.

While certain parts of each piece must be carved or altered as to
retain proper function, burls and other unique growth shapes are
integrated to highlight certain features. These unusual patterns help
to break down the standard furniture template breathing natural life
into a ubiquitous object. Assembling these pieces creates a dialogue
of growth, where nature continues to evolve through ordinary objects,
building upon the simplicity and charm of the rustic style.

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for artists and fine craftsmen/women ! I am very glad you joined us !

Please add your thoughts to the blogs and discussion forums that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before February 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.

All images sent to the website will be reviewed to assure some measure of overall quality control. Crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT in both content and photo quality. From the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible.

Crafthaus does not support any kind of commercial solicitation of our membership. Anyone sending out communication of that kind will be suspended from the site.

Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

Again: Welcome and enjoy !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor

In a state of jazz

Time to shift gears away from science and into music. I play jazz flute and piano and when I read this interview with Branford Marsalis  (sax player who led the Tonight Show band for Jay Leno), it connected with some thoughts I’ve been mulling over about the metal art world. I’ll start with the excerpt and comment at the bottom:“You put on old records and they always sound…See More
