A woodworker since age 9, as well as a Figurative Painting instructor at Art Center College in Pasadena California, John Ford's interest in the gestural and organic formal possibilities of wood is apparent in all of his work. John Ford's intention after studying at the Art Center College of Design was to pursue a career in modern figurative painting, but a number of side projects ushered him back into the wood workshop, and he has not left since. From his studio in Los Angeles, he creates modern, sculptural designs that draw a viewer in with their unique lines and masterful construction. Each piece is an artful celebration of both material and form. Ford has also worked on a number of high-end architectural projects as a combination of designer, engineer and fabricator. He recognizes and overcomes the challenge of going beyond a design that is merely comfortable and functional and therefore designs pieces that take on a myriad of dimensions. Haute Living is excited to carry the work of this talented American designer.
