  • 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.

  • A rich collection of imagery explores the actual homes of three of the most esteemed wood artist/craftsmen of the modern era: Wharton Esherick, Sam Maloofi, and George Nakashima. Tour the private homes of these masters and compare their innovation and vision through the medium of their own homes, gardens, and work areas. Step into their environments, where aesthetics are most accurately realized. You’ll delight in Esherick’s humble mountaintop home where straight lines were purposefully forbidden, and Maloof’s sprawling California home that expresses his inexhaustible creativity and industriousness. Nakashima‘s home is a harmonious marriage of Japanese influences with Pennsylvania’s rich natural resources. This book is a must-have for devotees of these artists, as well as aspiring woodworkers who want tutelage from the top.
  • Established in 1999, Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios (HAHS), a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is a coalition of museums throughout the country that were the homes and studios of American artists. From the desert vistas of Georgia O’Keeffe’s New Mexico ranch to Winslow Homer’s studio on the rocky, windswept coast of southern Maine, the homes and studios in the network are sites of extraordinary creativity. The Wharton Esherick Museum is proud to be a founding HAHS member, and a site featured in this publication.

    Guide to Historic Artists’ Homes & Studios is the first guidebook to the network, conveying each artist’s visual legacy and setting each site in the context of its architecture and landscape, which often were designed by the artists themselves. Through portraits, artwork, and site photos, discover the powerful influence of place on American greats such as Andrew Wyeth, Grant Wood, Lee Krasner, and Donald Judd, as well as lesser-known but equally creative figures who made important contributions to cultural history---multimedia artist James Castle, photographer Alice Austen, and muralist Clementine Hunter among them.

    Organized by region Guide to Historic Artists’ Homes & Studios weaves the history of the sites’ architecture and landscape with the artists’ biographies and their visual legacy. The guide features portraits of the artists, examples of their artwork, site descriptions, and photographs as well as visitor information and a site map.

  • Black print on ash grey shirt. The print is "The Hammersmen" from Wharton's illustrated and illuminated "Song of the Broad-Axe" by Walt Whitman. **Please note, the color of this shirt may vary from a light ash gray to a slightly darker heather gray (see pictured).**
  • An intimate and revealing collection of photographs of astonishingly beautiful, iconic, and undiscovered mid-century interiors. Among significant mid-century interiors, none are more celebrated yet underpublished as the homes created by architects and interior designers for themselves. This collection of newly commissioned photographs presents the most compelling homes by influential mid-century designers, such as Russel Wright, George Nakashima, Harry Bertoia, Charles and Ray Eames, and Eva Zeisel, among others. Intimate as well as revelatory, Williamson’s photographs show these creative homes as they were lived in by their designers: Walter Gropius’s historic Bauhaus home in Massachusetts; Albert Frey’s floating modernist aerie on a Palm Springs rock outcropping; Wharton Esherick’s completely handmade Pennsylvania house, from the organic handcarved staircase to the iconic furniture. Personal and breathtaking by turn—these homes are exemplary studies of domestic modernism at its warmest and most creative.
