Stuart Chase has launched a beautiful line of Modern Organic Furniture that is handcrafted in his private wood shop in Vermont. This unique furniture is created with materials that come from a collection of woods retrieved from all over the world and the Lake Champlain Valley in Vermont. Reclaimed tree roots and decayed or deceased trees make up the organic elements of his woodwork. The rarity and inconsistency of these multi-dimensional pieces makes organizing and blending the pieces with modern forms a remarkable challenge. The base structures for the modern and linear portions of the pieces are made up of solid wenge, zebrawood, ebony, acrylic and aluminum. All finishes are oil-based for maximum durability, and colored acrylic accents are used at times to fill voids and add sparkle to the pieces. Carving introduces an additional element that provides an area of transition between the modern and organic materials.
