Tractor Seat Stool, 2022, black walnut. 21 x 18 x 12 inches.

This piece is created by Henry Webb and featured in our 28th Annual Juried Exhibition, Home as Self.

Henry Webb is a woodworker based in Juneau, Alaska. After working seasonally in a modern cabinet and furniture shop for three years, Webb founded Heirloom Joinery in order to pursue his own design and building method and principles. His methods are centered on solid hardwoods and traditional hand joinery and his aesthetic is both primitive and modern. Webb wants his furniture to be explicit and honest, and he shows his joinery as much as possible to tell the story of how it was put together and to add decorative interest. Webb is not a hand tool purist, but is a joinery purist who believes that well cut joints make strong furniture that lasts and is beautiful. He draws on green woodworking, pre-industrial woodcraft and slojd techniques. He is inspired by Shaker, Japanese and Scandinavian design and the work of Wharton Esherick, and the “Form follows Function” adage is a cliche he appreciates.
