Studio Sanctuaries - Part 3

Few things are more important to an artist than their workspaces. Part sanctuary, part workshop, part hang-out. This exhibit honors our studio spaces where we spend most of our time. Take a peek inside the third edition.http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/studio-sanctuaries-part-3See More

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.
