All New American was stunned by the beauty and intricacy of the vessels created by today’s featured Monday Maker.
Please meet artist RICHARD HAINING based in Brooklyn, NY.
In a world that tends to shun manual labor, Richard finds pure joy in the art of working with his hands.
Working with discarded scrap wood, Richard finds beauty in the knots, century-old nail holes, mineral stains and other “defects” that are part of a tree’s history.
Even the off-cuts are not wasted; they just require a bit more patience, imagination and love in order to be reborn.
Educated at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, Richard is committed to responsible design that is elegantly hand-crafted with a modern sensibility.
Richard works with designers, trade professionals and residential clients alike; custom tailoring each piece to suit each client’s specific needs.
Locally salvaged remnants become the building blocks for his ‘Stacked’ collection of furniture
and case goods.
Richard can be proud to be a part of the ‘American Made’ community that is fuel for the engine that powers America.
Thank you for giving us your time today. Have a great week. The Team.
