Stuart Blanchard
Media: Wood

I have done woodworking in one form or another for perhaps the past 35 years. Much of my philosophy about woodworking is well-summarized by author Wendell Berry in his book The Art of the Commonplace:

“Good work uses no thing without respect, both for what it is in itself and for its origin.  It uses neither tool or material that it does not respect and that it does not love...It does not dissociate life and work, or pleasure and work, or love and work, or usefulness and beauty...To work without pleasure or affection, to make a product that is not both useful and beautiful, is to dishonor God, nature, the thing that is made, and whomever it is made for.”
