Hey everyone, I’m a senior this year at Rockingham County High in Rockingham County, NC and I’m doing my senior/graduation project on woodworking (more specifically furniture). I’m finishing up the research paper right now, but I need one last thing before I can turn it in, an interview. It doesn’t have to be a sit-down and answer a series of questions kind of thing. I don’t have to turn in any printed out Q&A session. I just need a quote or two from an expert and there’s plenty of experts on LJs so I thought I’d look for some input here. I didn’t feel like asking random people was the right way to do it, so I’m posting a forum for it where you can leave any feedback if you’re interested.
Here’s my thesis:
Furniture, since its conception out of the transition from nomadic cultures to settled ones, has transcended the fine arts such as painting, drawing, and photography as a craft that has a rich relationship with age, the physical senses, and functionality, three realms that display a heartier understanding of human values that go beyond the temporal boundaries of life.
I split it into three sections:
Age: where I talk about how furniture grows more valuable and stuff with time
Feel free to post anything about the topics, the reasons for your passion, whatever. I appreciate any feedback.
I’m gonna post some pictures of my project sometime soon. I’m building a japanese influenced garden/patio kind of bench. It’s comin out really nice.
Thanks a lot,
