Artist Statement

Roger Combs Studio“I believe in creating functional art that combines good design with hand selected domestic and exotic hardwoods. Lumber is my palette – a variety of colors, textures, and grains that reveal themselves to me.”

 

Roger Combs Studio“The process of creating pieces begins by following the flow of the wood. I love the passion of feeling a piece coming together – rough cutting, final dimensioning, solid joinery, shaping, and diligent sanding to detail.”

 

Installation by Roger Combs“Finally, hand finishing with numerous nurturing coats of oils to enliven and preserve. My pieces call out to be touched, caressed and appreciated for a lifetime.”
