Cherry and Maple Burl Dresser
48" high by 36" wide by 20" deep
Cherry, Maple Burl, Maple, and Ebony

This Asian inspired dresser in Cherry and Maple Burl is part of a large bedroom suite built in the same style. The Maple Burl panels are surrounded by a border of Cherry crossbanding on the sides and drawer fronts and with an Ebony inlay on the top panel. The drawers are Maple and slide on side mounted wooden runners. The Ebony handles were designed to carry the same cove detail seen in the underside of the top, which makes for an easy to hold handle.

Please contact the artist for more information.

Artist Biography

As a furniture maker my work evolves by blending the practical and artistic needs of my clients with my desire to create individual objects with intensity and feeling. I often incorporate imagery in the form of flowers, leaves and animals into select pieces of my furniture, designing subtle floral ornamentations to enhance my furniture with classical marquetry.
My marquetry furniture combines the structural geometry of a man made object with the asymmetry of nature represented in flower and leaf patterns and motifs. The addition of decorative marquetry is a doorway into unique and exiting visual forms and more expressive freedom. In this way I attempt to fill the basic need of a functional object with creative detailed work far exceeding expectations.
In recent years my furniture has won numerous Best of Show and 1st Place Awards in regional and national exhibitions including Best of Show at the 2007 International Design In Wood Exhibition and Best of Show at the 2007 and 2009 Artistry In Wood Exhibitions at the Sonoma County Museum of Art.
Artist profiles and images of my work may be found in magazines and books including; Fine Woodworking, Romantic Homes, San Diego Home and Garden, Lark Books, Crafts Report, Woman’s Day and many others.
