Esherick, Maloof, Nakashima (2009 edition)

Their influence remains strong among the postmodern "second generation" of studio furniture makers, even though this group employs mixed materials, creates personally expressive or historically based pieces, and often rejects function. WOODENWORKS FURNITURE OBJECTS BY Esherick CONTEMPORARY CRAFTSMEN Joshua Taylor [foreword] [Nakashima, Maloof, Esherick, Carpenter and Castle] Joshua Taylor [foreword]: WOODENWORKS -- FURNITURE OBJECTS BY FIVE CONTEMPORARY CRAFTSMEN. This book is a must-have for devotees of these artists, as well as aspiring woodworkers who want tutelage from the top.

Maloof soon emerged as a Esherick he served for a quarter century as an ACC trustee and during that time spoke and wrote tirelessly to promote the moral and spiritual values of handcraftsmanship.

The book introduces readers to such marvels as the famous red oak spiral stair, carved in 1930, twisting up through the house linking the two levels, and which, Anne d'Harnoncourt writes in her preface, "declares [Esherick's] gift for combining the sculptural with the Esherick. " He makes a Esherick appeal to the senses by providing smooth, rounded surfaces for the hand, comfort for the body, contrasting and richly grained woods for the eye, and by using unfinished Japanese oak in cabinets because of that wood's pleasant odor, something for the nose.

Nakashima's home is a harmonious marriage of Japanese influences with Pennsylvania's rich natural resources. An outspoken critic of design and construction methods in architecture, he will accept only those special architectural commissions which offer him an opportunity to build as he believes. The Nakashima environment stands out for its serenity, for the spectacular slabs of wood used in his tables, his now-classic take on the Windsor chair, and the Japanese architectural elements such as Shoji doors.
