Influenced by Japanese culture, design, and construction, I work to achieve ultimate Shibui 渋い. Shibui is a Japanese term that refers to the balance of simplicity with complexity. The purpose of shibui is to strip an object of most ornament, focus on the crafting of the material and its purposeful line, form, and efforts. What is left when all ornament is removed? Pure, honest beauty!
I have created my own shop in hopes of impressing shibui upon others. My veneer work and solid wood furniture is simple in form, purposeful in detail, and finished with oil.
I hope you enjoy my work. Please stay tuned for a new Veneer Collection sold here online!
