her face

beaming from under her umbrella

her bright sleepy eyes

the song of her voice

her hair, up (her bouncing pony-tail)

the long nape of her neck, exposed and sensitive

her moves (she floats, she glides)

cutting through the air

Here’s Why We Need to Protect Public Libraries

We live in a “diverse and often fractious country,” writes Robert Dawson, but there are some things that unite us—among them, our love of libraries. “A locally governed and tax-supported system that dispenses knowledge and information for everyone throughout the country at no cost to its patrons is an astonishing thing,” the photographer writes in the introduction to his book, The Public Library: A Photographic Essay. “It is a shared commons of our ambitions, our dreams, our memories, our culture, and ourselves.”

But what do these places look like? Over the course of 18 years, Dawson found out. Inspired by “the long history of photographic survey projects,” he traveled thousands of miles and photographed hundreds of public libraries in nearly all 50 states. Looking at the photos, the conclusion is unavoidable: American libraries are as diverse as Americans. They’re large and small, old and new, urban and rural, and in poor and wealthy communities. Architecturally, they represent a range of styles, from the grand main branch of the New York Public Library to the humble trailer that serves as a library in Death Valley National Park, the hottest place on Earth. “Because they’re all locally funded, libraries reflect the communities they’re in,” Dawson said in an interview. “The diversity reflects who we are as a people.”

One of One Chair 2013

Solid American Black Walnut base.
Handmade cross laminated American Black Walnut plywood back.
Danish Chord woven seat.

Made across two countries and several years, this chair (my first) has been on a long journey – and me with it.

Making objects by hand has taught me that patience is a tangible and essential skill. In seeking to resolve design and production questions, sometimes the most productive thing one can do is stop – and wait.
