Cherry, Carpathian Elm Burl, Ebony, and Macassar Ebony

This Cherry wood dining table uses a special batch of Carpathian Elm Burl veneer in a four way bookmatch to create a light colored area of burl in the center of the table. The top also has Macassar Ebony crossbanding with two Ebony inlays surrounding the Elm Burl center. The solid Cherry table base design has a slightly Asian Arts and Crafts look and also features panels of Carpathian Elm veneer as accents in the end trestles and along the lower cross piece. The table top and Carpathian Elm Burl accent panels are finished with Polyester and Conversion Varnish for protection and the base and chairs are finished with satin Lacquer.

Artist Biography

As a furniture maker my work evolves by blending the practical and artistic needs of my clients with my desire to create individual objects with intensity and feeling. I often incorporate imagery in the form of flowers, leaves and animals into select pieces of my furniture, designing subtle floral ornamentations to enhance my furniture with classical marquetry.
My marquetry furniture combines the structural geometry of a man made object with the asymmetry of nature represented in flower and leaf patterns and motifs. The addition of decorative marquetry is a doorway into unique and exiting visual forms and more expressive freedom. In this way I attempt to fill the basic need of a functional object with creative detailed work far exceeding expectations.
In recent years my furniture has won numerous Best of Show and 1st Place Awards in regional and national exhibitions including Best of Show at the 2007 International Design In Wood Exhibition and Best of Show at the 2007 and 2009 Artistry In Wood Exhibitions at the Sonoma County Museum of Art.
Artist profiles and images of my work may be found in magazines and books including; Fine Woodworking, Romantic Homes, San Diego Home and Garden, Lark Books, Crafts Report, Woman’s Day and many others.
