Rob Gorrell - Folk Artist

We are moving in to a new (1890's) house and setting up shop. It looks like it will be March before I am ready to take new orders.

I have started on a three piece series of small cupboards or jewelry boxes. Each one will be variations on a church spire theme. In this series I am trying to branch out in my use of beads and jewelry parts as part of a tramp art project. When all of the tramp work and ornamentation is done the cupboards will be painted and antiqued.

The basic cases in the series are made from discarded walnut lumber. As in most of my work, I am trying to build mostly with salvaged or re-used wood.
