one piece ash wood bookends in use




Abanico Bookend
Sustainably Harvested Ash
11 x 2 x 11 high
$120 each, $240 per pair


one piece of wood cut and expanded into a bookend


For many years now I have been experimenting with the dramatic, fluid and graceful forms that can be created by cutting one piece of wood most, but not all the way through and then expanding it.  This method has led to clean, honest forms where the structure is the ornamentation.  As you can see from the photo above, it is still one piece of wood.  Open it like an accordion and simply connect it to make a useful, strong, sculptural bookend. You can order them from me or get them at the Bellevue Art Museum in Washington, the Museum of Art and Design in New York,  the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and many other galleries and museum stores around the country.

These bookends are made from FSC certified sustainably harvested Ash.  They are finished with a completely non toxic oil based finish.  To learn more about this group of work, click here to see a 4 minute slide show by Fine Woodworking magazine.
