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.”
