Process         About

This series of objects were all inspired by Stone Harbor, NJ - a town in which I spent much of my childhood swimming, sailing and catching crabs. For the bench, I wanted to create a versatile object that was strong enough to hold two adults and light enough to be carried by my grandmother. The storage box takes design cues from coolers and is sturdy enough to hold most anything. The evocative legs of the stool take visual cues from the water tower in the center of town. All objects were made with the intention of lasting a long time - being carefully considered from the materials and joinery to the finishes and weave structure.
