Sheldon Museum Chair Talk

This week I gave a talk about the history of Windsor chairs and how that relates to my work.    The talk took place at Sheldon Museum in Middlebury, Vermont.  It is a great little museum, especially if you are into Windsors. They have a great collection and I was very inspired to come up with some new designs after revisiting some of these originals.  It has been over 10 years since I spent a lot of time at the Shelburne Museum, also in Vermont.  That was were  I found the inspiration for my Waltham line of chairs.   I have not given any presentations for many years so this was a bit nerve racking to get ready for but it was actually a lot of fun.  I hope to do more of this.  It can be very easy to hide out in my shop and not interact with the public. Especially in this time of the internet.
