I’m a furniture maker, a designer, a builder and an artist. My interest in building furniture was sparked at the University of New Hampshire, where I received an Associates Degree in Forestry. One of the courses I participated in was a “source to finish” class involving everything from harvesting, skidding, and cherry picking to sawing the timber in our own small mill. I became fascinated with wood as a building medium. I got my degree at Montana State University where I spent summers as a horse logger and carpenter apprenticing under my Uncle Robert Clark, master carpenter and equestrian extraordinaire. I built a cabin for myself in the Gravely Mountain Range in southwest Montana. While I enjoyed carpentry and building, I knew my passion was fine furniture.
I attended an intensive furniture and design program at The Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC. I opened a studio/shop for a brief period of time in Bozeman, Montana before moving my life and business to North Ferrisburgh, Vermont in 2000. In 2007 I studied under master chairwright, Hal Taylor, focusing on building Sam Maloof style rocking chairs. In the spring of 2016my family and I moved to North Yarmouth, Maine in the rolling hills northwest of Portland. Presently,I focus on building everything from traditional to modern, Sam Maloof style rocking chairs to one-of-a-kind pieces.
I am inspired by the fluid forms of nature. Let me work with you to create a one-of-a-kind piece that meets your specific needs and brings the familiar beauty of the outdoors into your home. If you prefer, any one of the designs in my web gallery can be recreated as shown or with a variety of different wood combinations.
I invite you to call and make an appointment or e‑mail questions, ideas, or photos of your living space. If you live in the area, I would be happy to come to your home to plan the piece with you.
My furniture has a lifetime guarantee for as long as you or your family owns one of my pieces. I can ship anywhere in the continental US and Canada or where ever one can drive, fly, or sail.
I look forward to working with you to create an heirloom “objet d’art” that will be loved for generations.
Sincerely, Kit Clark
