“I choose to make furniture because of its interactive quality. It is not meant solely for observation as in a museum; rather, it is meant for the home, fitting into the lives of the people who use them. It is sculpture but it is sculpture we live with. I make furniture that is meant to be touched and used every day and by those means enhances our lives.”
