Crest for Music Stand
Crest is 9” x 31” x 2”
This music stand was commissioned by the Choral Music Department of
Stanford University for use in the Chapel. It was a collaborative project;
my part was the carved crest rail.
64” x 18” x 16”
This chair is one of a series of “Goddess chairs” based on images of various
Goddess figures. This one was based on the marble images from
Cycladic Islands in the Aegean from approximately 2000 BC.
I studied furniture making with James Krenov at The College of the Redwoods Fine Woodworking Program in the early 80’s. I made furniture for almost 25 years before turning to a more specialized focus on carving. While I am no longer making furniture “for my own pleasure” as the English stone carver Eric Gill referred to his speculative work, I do accept commissions for interesting projects.
