This gallery of furniture contains 28 pieces made from 1980 to the present, of rare and sometimes extinct materials (amber, fossil ivory, Cuban mahogany) as well as native species (curly maple and curly cherry).
“Timothy Philbrick recasts traditional furniture with a contemporary feeling. The quiet stylishness, gentle curves, subtle shaping and innate sense of wood apparent in his work have earned the respect of his peers. “Philbrick’s soft spoken, traditionally based work demands serious and sustained study. Fellow furniture makers and serious collectors recognize its sophistication and the important role he has played in developing the historical approach.”
