“I try to live right. I always try to adhere to what I think is right, and that, to me, is the most important part of creative work. So much of me goes into each piece that I make that in making each new piece, a renewal takes place. So it continues: a renewal in my commitment to my work and what I believe.” —Sam Maloof

LostArtPress on InstagramPsst. The second edition of @nrhiller’s great book “Making Things Work” is now available in our store. Changes to the second edition are minor — new dust jacket (swipe to see) and a short additional tale at the end. We are so pleased that Nancy has let us become the publisher for this book, and we hope to keep it in print for many years to come.Tall Clocks. 81-1/2" H x 15 -3/8” W x 8-3/4" D (207cm x 39.1cm x 22.2cm). One of my favorite pieces, this clock design is attributed to Benjamin Youngs, Sr., of Watervliet, N.Y. It’s austere, yet elegant; the only adornment is the quarter-round moulding top and bottom, and the cove that supports the bonnet. The original is pine, with a mahogany stain. I usually make this clock in cherry, but it also looks stunning completely ebonized. Dennis Griggs photo. — from “Shaker Inspiration” by Christian Becksvoort. #Shaker_InspirationHey chair nerds.
