Every piece of furniture I design, as well as most my sculptures, begins as a drawing in a sketchbook. These drawings start out very rough and loose before slowly taking the shape of the final product. None of my drawings is ever perfectly finished – that’s what the computer is for – but I find that beginning on the page rather than on a computer screen allows for a much greater sense of freedom and enhanced creativity. Almost all of the sketches in this gallery correspond to finished pieces you can find in the furniture gallery.
