This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.

I am beginning as a studio furnituremaker and designer in Orange County, CA. My interest in making furniture was first sparked while studying fine art at the University of California, Santa Cruz. My intense interest in Chinese and Japanese art, which is not distinguished from craft, provided a basis to explore my interest in woodworking through the lens of an artist and a scholar. Although I was often frustrated at the University by what I felt was the closed-mindedness of the academic art world, the chance to study the the theoretical and historical origins of art in tandem with my development as a craftsman, left me with a broad aesthetic knowledge to draw from. After graduating from college I adjusted my studio to suit the needs of a more artisan style of furniture, and completed several pieces that reflect my ecclectic approach to design. The launching of my website is one of many ways I am seeking to broaden my horizons as an artist and craftsman.
