First Prize in Craft at Art of the State!

I was honored this past Sunday to receive First Prize in Craft at The State Museum of Pennsylvania for my walnut and birds eye maple cabinet.

Art of the State is a juried exhibition showcasing the talent, creativity and diversity of the state’s established and emerging artists.  I was proud to have two pieces in this exhibit, selected from over 1,600 submissions.

The exhibit is open now until September 13th, and more information about visiting the State Museum of Pennsylvania can be found here.

February 2015 issue of Fine Woodworking

For those of you who haven't been able to get your hands on a hard copy of the most recent issue of Fine Woodworking magazine, here it is.  If you recall from my last post, one of my pieces, 60th Sideboard, is featured in the magazine.

Check it out... in Fine Woodworking

I'm not sure if it is out in stores yet, but for those of you who subscribe to Fine Woodworking magazine (as I do), you may have noticed that one of my pieces was included in the February 2015 issue.  The piece, 60th Sideboard, is part of the Reader's Gallery section of the magazine.

How this piece came to be featured in the magazine was particularly gratifying in that Fine Woodworking magazine, or rather a person from the magazine, contacted me and asked if I would consider letting them use this piece in the Reader's Gallery.  Typically, one would submit work unsolicited, but the fact that my work was sought out by such a well known magazine was...well...pretty fine.

If you don't get the chance to see the print version (which I'd recommend as it's sexier than the online version), here's a link to the online version at Fine Woodworking's website, which includes the short write-up.
