For a recent edition of This Old House magazine, Norm and Mike Rowe came and hung out at Keating Woodworks for the day to talk about making sure we educate and train the next generation of craftsmen and women. See the cover photo and read about it here.
In 1975, the Boston Museum of Fine Art commissioned an installation entitled “Please Be Seated,” which included chairs from several makers including Sam Maloof. As part of the celebration for his 100 birthday, the Riverside Art Museum, in conjunction with the Maloof Foundation, put together a group show entitled (intentionally playing on the title of the 1975 Boston show) “Sit With Me”, by way of exploring Maloof‘s influence on contemporary chair makers who are carrying his torch so to speak. I couldn’t be more honored to have been invited to make several pieces for the installation. The thought of having my pieces sitting next to those of my hero was daunting to say the least. Seeing Maloof’s pieces in person was truly awe inspiring.
Ed Roberson, the man behind the popular podcast Mountain and Prairie was kind enough to interview me for his latest pod. He does really cool stuff on conservation, the American West, you name it. It turned into a nice conversation about the nature of my craft and what it’s like starting your own business. Check it out here.
