The most interdisciplinary program in the Crafts Department, the Art Furniture program embodies the motto, “Sculptural Object, Functional Art.” Offering a strong foundation in working with wood, this specialty allows students to easily craft connections with other disciplines. Think: sculpture, product design, and metalsmithing.
Students are encouraged to incorporate a variety of technical proficiencies and experiences into their development of furniture but, most important, to develop skills applicable to the life-cycle of furniture design from page to finished product: draw concepts, develop forms, and explore the best ways to realize their ideas.
Watch CCS students work with Wilsonart, a global manufacturer of laminates, for a sponsored research project.
