yesterday was the opening of our solo show at the southern vermont arts center in manchester, vermont … we had 8 pieces there plus six of our ladderback chairs. it is the first time in a long while we’ve done a solo show; it’s usually ‘a piece here and a piece there’ when we take part in a show, but this was a full out effort .. it feels good now that it’s underway, but i took my last piece in friday afternoon at 3:00 so it was a race to the wire. it was also nice to take the day off today. our theme was ‘wood and metal; color and textures’, and my favortie piece in the show is one, coincidentally, i did on my own, (ok, will did the gold leaf) on the weekends and i really like the way it reflected my friend marta’s drawings and the other furniture in the room. the mirror itself involved some planning, some large diameter turning on the outboard end of the lathe and got a lot of comments at the opening … for a more complete descriptioin of the process and more photos, visit my dorset csutom furniture blog ...
