Functional Art Furniture

      Functional Art by definition is basically artistically inspired furniture.  In my case, that often translates to furniture with the art work inlaid directly into the surface.  I’ve never actually considered myself a furniture maker, for me the furniture is just a means to an end.  The furniture acts as my canvas to create my art on.  My projects of choice are usually tables or other pieces that have a flat surface.
     No stains or dyes are used in any of the inlaid artwork; I use the natural color and grain of the wood to create the images.  The resilient colors are of woods that grow naturally all over the world.  The vibrant red of the South American Red Heart, the jet black from the Ebony tree, and the stunning snake skin appearance of Australian Lacewood all contribute to my pallet.  These are but some of the exotic woods I use in the Inlay Process.
