Polished Perfection: The Art of Turned-Wood Bowls, the Edward Jacobson Collection


This exhibition features 84 works by 21 contemporary North American craftsmen and four early American settlers, all of whom work in turned-wood. The lathe has been used by craftsmen to hew blocks of wood into functional and decorative objects for thousands of years. In the 20th century, when mechanized mass-production replaced the hand lathe, the craftsmen who persisted in turning were able to more freely explore their own aesthetic. Works on view include those by Del Stubbs, Ed Moulthrop, James Prestini, Melvin Lindquist, and Ronald Kent, among others.

Making Vermelha Chair


The Vermelha chair is an iconic piece, originally conceived and prototyped in 1993 for a gallery show in São Paulo along with several other pieces. The construction of the chair is very time-intensive, as it is handmade from a huge length of rope wrapped and woven to create the chair’s structure
