So Gigi and I took a road trip to East Hampton, MA to visit the famed marquetuer Silas Kopf. The time went to fast.
Silas took us through the making of a tulip that I've weaved in and out of our discussions on what form follows, materials, creativity, to what gets you excited, and even touch on searching for what's next.
Silas takes us on a shop tour and introduces us to his right hand and cabinetmaker Tom Coughlin. He discusses a current cabinet in production and we hit on traveling to visit historical objects.
Silas has written a book titled A Marquetry Odyssey, that has a place in the woodworkers library and also the coffee table to enlighten those who visit.
Enjoy.......a podcast doesn't get much better than this!!
