17th Century New England Carving
Ref: 2-DVD-PF-17-CNEC

with Peter Follansbee

"This style of carved decoration takes its inspiration from furniture and woodwork from both England and New England, spanning most of the seventeenth century. Geometric, floral and architectural elements combine to make up the designs. First-hand examinations of oak furniture in both public and private collections provide the material upon which my work is based, which I do in the traditional manner from riving oak logs and working the green wood with hand tools."
