Craftsmanship School Produces Amazing Wood Art
USA- New York, NY | Aug 14 2012 | (23:01:01 - EDT)
The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship showcases fine art created by the faculty. This innovative art school takes wood carving to the extreme level. Even the smallest bowl is an amazing work of art.
From a representational “Frog Bowl” by British carver Chris Pye to a marquetry self-portrait by Massachusetts furniture maker Silas Kopf, the show presents a multitude of aesthetic voices, most of them speaking the language of wood. The exceptions are drawing instructors Linden Frederick, from Belfast, Maine, and John Whalley from Damariscotta, Maine, who communicate with paint and pencil.
“Every piece of furniture or work of art is a prescription for the life to be lived around it, which makes this show a recipe for enchantment,” observes Center Director Peter Korn. “We are fortunate that every one of our instructors is an exceptional designer or artist with a compelling creative vision.”
The items seen are for sale to lucky patrons. View the entire faculty collection at: http://www.woodschool.org
