The Things We Make

Images of my work and images that inspire me.

This series depicts some of the tools and techniques of open bowl turning as taught by master woodturner Mr. Al Stirt. I participated in a five day workshop at the beautiful Anderson Ranch in Snowmass Village just up the road from Aspen, CO. We spent the first two days working with green wood cut from a hackberry log that had been residing just outside our studio. We then moved into turning some kiln dried wood with our choice of ash, cherry, walnut, or poplar. Working in the studio from 9am until 10pm each day, we produced a great variety of open bowls, dishes and textured facades. Al was even nice enough to share some of the technique he uses to make the ceramic-like patterns and painted surface finishes found in his “square" series.

Timber

Timber consists of 10 massive wood parts. It is held together by its own weight. Design and function is merged to let the observer see and understand the principles of its construction. Watch!

I was at a client’s apartment today and I could not resist taking more pictures of this table. It makes me want to make another one.

Here’s a blast from the not so distant past. Outside Magazine’s 2014 Spring issue featuring Miya’s. This is the article that helped lead to the television show that I will be hosting and producing with Ted Lai, Dylan Bruno, and in equal partnership with one of the most important television production companies in America. Every episode of the show (where I will be chasing the most dangerous and frightening invasive species such as killer bees, poisonous vipers, and rats) will be book-ended at Miya’s and will include many of the most interesting people in New Haven, as experts and tasters. http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/culinary/The-Invasivores-Dilemma.html
When I think about the awesomeness of the upcoming show, I think about all the people who have supported me and Miya’s over so many decades to help us become the internationally influential but humble little local restaurant that we are. I cannot begin to thank you all enough for supporting me and the family of Miya’s though decades worth of my brazenly bad ideas, and the few innovative ones too. When others turned their nose up at my work at Miya’s, you gave me your loving support. I plan to help make the world a better place, in my small way, with the opportunities you all have created for me. I put my hands together and bow to you, my friends!Please follow us on Twitter for updates and let’s adventure together! Twitter: @MiyasSushi

I loved my DS21 Palace, there is no other car that rides like a Citroen.

Finished up a new coffee table. This table is made from a beautiful slab of river birch that grew up next to the Connecticut river. The next step is to ship this lovely to Boston.

Wooden “Root System” Installation by Henrique Oliveira

designed-for-life:

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira recently completed work on his largest installation to date titled Transarquitetônica at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade in São Paulo.

The enormous piece is built from inexpensive repurposed wood pieces nailed to an organic framework that like a large root system. Because the space provided by the museum was so immense, the artist expanded the installation into a fully immersive environment where viewers are welcome to enter the artwork and explore the cavernous interior.

Making up the chroma 3-form hand rail panel. The panels had to be glued up and preped, one seam slipped, one seam crazed the third seam was perfect. We finished our installation just as the steel fabricators arrived to do their work.
