How I Create

I like to make my own furniture. I get the pecan wood shipped in from Paraguay. I never know what I’m going to make. I start picking up the pieces and let them be shaped by the muse.

The thing is, what I make is not easy to sit in. I’ve had people come to my house and try and sit and get very angry. I tell them, “If I made my furniture easy to sit in, you wouldn’t notice them.”

I remember my mom saying, “Why do people have to notice what you do?” I didn’t know what to say to her. Instead I laid back and relaxed into my upside-down bench and ironing board.
