Introducing Alumni Stories
Now you can find out what our alumni are up to!
Personally, I grew tremendously during the Furniture Making course; finding in myself an attention to detail and a patience in building I didn’t know I was capable of.
I've always loved making things. It took a while to figure out I preferred making things out of wood but when I did everything seemed to click in place.
I’m drawn to traditional joinery, the kind built to last. Japanese temples in particular have always felt magical to me, the great attention and care their builders took to ensure they’d survive for centuries.
I've always loved the look and feel of wood, especially when turned into a beautiful object, so for the past 15 years or so I have been making boxes out of hard woods.
My intentions are to sculpturally marry wood and stone. I have two such sculptural projects started. In woodworking I have a walnut mantle in the layout stage and a Shaker style headboard in the imagining stage.
While I am not actively seeking employment, I would enjoy receiving a few commissions to build garden gates.
