13″x13″x18″ walnut and nautical rope
A seat with thick handcut dovetails, hand-gouged tattoos, and a whimsical sumo belt.
diameters: 14-22″, heights: 15-19″, walnut and wenge
The client had this interesting idea for little coffee tables that could be huddled together or moved around the room, even sat on. The result is these seven tripod tables incorporating a single leg that comes through the top and a wenge butterfly key.
60″x20″x36″ walnut and wenge
With three small drawers and two sliding doors, this sideboard combines a Chinese silhouette with contemporary lines, exposed joinery, and rich contrasting wood grains.
13″x14″x21″ cherry, bleached alder, cocobolo, latex paint, and white wax
The “Arab Spring” series incorporates Egyptian geometries and grafitti-inspired calligraphy, allowing me to experiment with more relief work on the CNC router. I was so happy with my original three-drawer piece that I decided to make another with a few changes: cherry wood and bleach to lighten the overall effect and a bottom shelf for magazines.
21″x14″x13″, walnut, tamo ash, dye, graphite
This piece was a commission in which the client let me run wild. Playing with the Egyptian geometries I’ve been interested in, and adding some grafitti-inspired calligraphy allowed me to experiment with more relief work on the CNC router. The idea for a floating black cube was very much inspired by the Kaaba in Mecca.
