What Sets Earl's Contemporary Furniture Apart —
Earl combines his original designs with the highest quality materials and the finest craftsmanship to create one-of-a-kind pieces of functional sculpture in the form of contemporary furniture and custom furniture. After completing a classical training designing and building custom furniture with a master furniture maker in 1989, Earl began designing and building his own contemporary furniture. His style is defined by his use of colorful large slabs and rare highly figured woods combined with clean, elegant lines and his eye for detail. His contemporary furniture displays solid wood so that its subtleties can be enjoyed — the way the grain moves through a sculpted piece, or the smooth feel of a tabletop or a shaped edge. With each new piece of custom furniture he is constantly exploring new techniques to push the limits of solid wood design. Durability is of the utmost importance: his contemporary furniture is built to last for generations. His pieces are finished with a tung oil based product that creates a very durable water, alcohol, and scratch resistant surface. This type of finish while time consuming to apply also brings out the depth in the grain of the wood unlike surface finishes. The finish on his contemporary furniture and custom furniture will never crack or chip so you will never have to refinish the entire piece. This along with limited production ensures the collectibility of his custom furniture and contemporary furniture which has his hand-carved signature and is archived to authenticate his original designs and ensure the customer's investment in the artwork.
