A Dozen and One Utah Furniture Makers
Despite the availability of many species of hardwoods and the advent of new materials such as metals and plastics for the design of furniture, independent furniture makers today, like their forbearers, still have a difficult time competing with major manufacturers. The thirteen individuals whose work built this exhibition are torch bearers of a new, handbuilt crafts movement. Their tradition of furniture making is not just built from utility or necessity, but from ingenuity, truth to the materials, and devotion to the craft.
