I am always working on unique, one-of-a-kind pieces in the shop. These works often incorporate found, recycled and reused materials. Many of these elements have become apart of my own design language. I like to work with a client on what specifics they need in terms of dimensions and function. I then work up a drawing and establish the details of the unique elements that they are drawn to and want to see in the final piece of furniture.
Commissioning a Piece For Your Home
Finding the perfect piece of furniture can be a lifelong quest. I recently made a blanket chest for a client who said she had searched for over ten years for just the piece. In working together with the client, I was able to build her the piece she’s spent years searching for. The process starts with a discussion about what type of furniture you need. This includes details such as size, features, and function. Using photographs of previous pieces, we can work out some options such as wood choices and trim details. Once the details are outlined, I can create a drawing of the piece with dimensions, noting options and cost. After review, the drawing can be adjusted and cost revised if need be. Once a final drawing is approved, a deposit is required and work can begin. Commissioned pieces will typically take eight to twelve weeks to complete. The balance of the cost is due prior to delivery. If you live locally, I may personally deliver the piece to your home. Many clients also opt to come and visit the studio topic up their new furniture. For clients living a greater distance from the studio, we can arrange for professional delivery directly to your home.
