My thanks to the collectors who purchased my miniature rustic twig furniture at the INDEPENDENCE PARK FINE CRAFTS FAIR Saturday!
I make my furniture from twigs and Lake Michigan driftwood, shells, stones, bark, seed pods and other natural materials. The challenge is to fabricate objects that require a certain form and symmetry, like chairs, for example, out of materials that are by nature randomly and organically shaped. I seek out the gnarliest twigs and pieces of driftwood, the curved, forked or twisted ones, because they make the most interesting furniture. No two of my chairs are ever alike in construction, although they are all identical in function. They embody the spirit of rustic design by using found or natural materials instead of manufactured ones, and at the same time evoke the many folk tales and legends of the little people of the forest. I have a lot of fun making them.
The little tables' tops are 5 inches above the surface they are standing on, and the chairs are scaled in proportion to that size.
