"I bet psycholgists could spend years figuring us all out by the looks of our studios. ;-) But seriously, I think we are interested in seeing other's work spaces. It's like a window into who they are and how they work. …"
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I am a one man studio woodworker. I work in a variety of scales and types of work with wood but mostly studio furniture. My work is typically sold through art galleries but I also do commission work as well.
I typically work with hardwoods of exceptional figure and character. Aside from furniture I also make unique jewelry furnishings and boxes and I turn wood and create sculptural forms. I was the 2007 NICHE Award winner for Turned Wood.
Should any jewelry artists at Crafhaus know of clients in need of unique Jewelry furnishings or boxes I would welcome referals or work with you in collaboration.
Your website, DIRECT flickr or DIRECT facebook links where your work can be seen.

“While striving to incorporate fashion and function in my body of work, Joe’s was created. Reflecting on the glamor once held by tobacco use, I pulled imagery from vintage cigarette advertisements. Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”

The belt buckle has long been a functional object. It has only been since the early 20th century that it has truly become a fashion statement.
