Christopher Fenter of fenterworks

My work is about re-imagining found lumber and reclaimed objects.  Whether I am making functional furniture pieces or decorative art, I always try to highlight the history of the material.  The natural patina of wood lath serves as the inspiration for many of my pieces.  The variable markings of time inherent to this material allow for diverse design choices. The process of locally sourcing these materials also provides me with a creative connection to my community and its history.
