Furniture Maker Jim Rose

Jim Rose makes familiar pieces from unfamiliar material – metal.

He specializes in steel art furniture, which follows the Shaker tradition in aesthetics. Rose’s reuse of refuse provides familiar new life to old things, while charting a new course that creates some startling realizations. What exactly is that? Simple enough question, but one I find myself asking regularly when viewing Rose’s furniture. It’s great fun.

More examples follow.
