WORKSHOP

HEATHER ZUSMAN IS A WOOD SCULPTOR AND ARTIST ORIGINALLY EDUCATED IN FINE FURNITURE MAKING. BORN AND RAISED IN CALIFORNIA, SHE SOUGHT TRAINING AT WATERS AND ACLAND FURNITURE SCHOOL IN STAVELEY, CUMBRIA, ENGLAND IN 2017. 

 

INFLUENCED BY TRADITIONAL WOODWORKING PRACTICES AND DESIGN MOTIFS FOUND IN ART NOUVEAU AND THE ARTS & CRAFTS MOVEMENT, ZUSMAN’S SCULPTURAL WORKS ARE SIMPLE IN FORM AND PURPOSEFUL IN DETAIL.

 

THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN FORM AND DISPLACED SHADOW IS A CRITICAL THEME FOUND IN ZUSMAN’S WORK. SINUOUS PATHS ARE LAMINATED FROM LAYERS OF VENEER THAT CREATE AN ORGANIC BALANCE, ALLOWING EACH PIECE TO APPEAR EFFORTLESS AND LIGHT.
