Human Endeavor

Human Endeavor throughout time has crafted objects to enhance daily life. My furniture respects the labor-intensive nature of past human effort, and continues to rely on hands-on-work as integral in the shaping of each project. These furniture pieces transform raw discarded materials into useful objects expressing the values I hold for traditional techniques of wood joinery and metal welding, along with my desire to reduce the waste of our culture. When designing I use the long-established shapes and functions of furniture as the canvas, rethinking how it can be built and perceived using the pieces and parts I have available to me. Because my design process starts with pieces of wood, the product can only be one of a kind. My knowledge of materials and my design background allows me to create based on a combination of structure, beauty and function, however the items that I build transcend these basic ideas and each express their own character.
