My interests in wood craft reach across the spectrum of the art form with special interest in fine wood furniture design and construction, and most specifically, handcrafted heirloom quality chairs. I use the highest quality hardwoods available for all of my custom built wood furniture, which are often locally harvested and dried. I am always looking for interesting figured woods, which help give my pieces another layer of appeal. My solid wood American designs are influenced by the late Sam Maloof, and to a lesser extent Greene & Greene and the Craftsman movement. As is the case with all of my artistic pieces of furniture, my chairs are constructed and sculpted by hand in California.
The beautiful rocking chair, shown opposite, was made of Figured Claro Walnut, and has many elements of the work of Sam Maloof. The sensuous design lines invite you to "have a seat and relax awhile". This rocking chair design is the cornerstone of my Sam Maloof signature furniture line. Whether you are enjoying afternoon tea in the Low Back Chair or reading a good book in the Elegant Rocker, your comfort will always be unsurpassed.
My wood art has been featured at Gallery M in Half Moon Bay and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Arts. I am confident that you will treasure your wood art as I do.
