I’m fascinated by the social and cultural significance of the things that populate our domestic spaces, and I want to explore meaning through the production of new furniture objects. These projects are based on my interest in reconsidering applications for low-tech craft techniques. Coopering is a type of wood joinery traditionally used to make barrels. In this case, multiple pieces of low-grade and reclaimed lumber have been coopered together to create an open volume to be filled and/or used as a table surface.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
