The old saying "the shoe-maker's children run barefoot" doesn't always hold true--one of the delights of growing up in an artistic household is the fact that some of the furnishings and surroundings are unique, hand-made items that perform good service and enrich a home's comfort.
Whether it was carved rhinoceri, miniature toy dogs, a dollhouse with a beautiful cupola, or numerous household items, Will kept his family well-supplied when his children were young, and continues this work to this day.
Will originally constructed and carved this chair in 1963 for his first child; it has since been used by all his children and grandchildren.
The tray had needed refurbishing for a number of years; Will recently completed this work over the summer and photographed the results.

Will has been in Germany, but he's back, and has resumed work on the photography archive.
This week, five new images. The animal ones are excellent (the warthog head is my favorite), but--this week, two figure drawings.
We have been attempting to track down images of Will's Elaine series, from the early 70s. If anyone checking through here happens to be someone who has one or more of those hanging on their walls--would it be possible for you to forward us a best-quality image of your drawing? It would be greatly appreciated from this end.
On another note, there are some issues with the "updated" templates that make up these pages. While I'm getting that sorted, I'll be putting all this week's fresh images on this blog page, so they'll be easy to see/locate.
Will is a sculptor and draftsman, living and working in Cambridge, MA.
