Hi everyone,

First I want to thank you all, for all the complements about Glen’s art. He is installing his show at NJSOA today this will be a very late night, I will show him your posts. Here is a detail of Asian Interpretation Table. I am Glen’s biggest critic, but I will say that this is a gorgeous table. Usually he only makes a design one time. He added Asian Interpretation Table & the mirror to his reproduction page because he likes making the leg, but will not make it identical. He likes to individualize each piece for a client.

The table uses complicated joinery reminiscent of Asian designs, its like putting a puzzle together. He did a conference table and a display cabinet in a similar style. Almost forgot he did a coffee table also.

The table is in his show that opens this week. I see JContract asked me to add In Tune give me a few minutes & I’ll get that up as well.

Don’t tell me he did all that fancy work, hired a professional photographer, and all he got was this one shot? What a shame, it looks interesting too.

You gotta tell us how the joinery works! I can tell, that one angle doesn’t do it justice. Most furniture consists of us thinking of 2D shapes joined together at right angles. This looks like he conceptualized this in 3D.

Hi, someone asked why we don’t have more images of Glen’s work. The reason is quite simple it is very expensive. Also I have learned that publications & galleries don’t need or want lots of views. When I submit to a show or a publication I’m limited by number of images I can send.

Also photo shoots are very time consuming. Editing RAW images is something I haven’t tried yet. I do always get the images in a jpg & TIF.

Glen is teaching a furniture design class tonight at WPU. Tomorrow we are picking up a piece at a museum & hope to get it to the gallery tomorrow. I suggested to Glen that we should do videos of some pieces, we just need more hours in the day, but eventually we will do it. Many clients have no concept what goes into doing a piece of furniture. His little 2 minute video that NJN taped has gotten lots of hits.

After the show opens he will have some time to talk about the table with you all.

He set up most of his show this weekend with 26 pieces of furniture. Asian Interpretation will be in the show.

Good night,
