A Brief Bio of  Bill Johnson

HeadshotBeginning with an introductory course in wood carving as an undergraduate at Colorado State University I developed a fascination with the material world and its tactile relationships. After receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1993 I embarked on a career as a commercial sculptor, working in St. Louis, Missouri and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Working in a wide variety of materials from traditional — clay, wood and metals, to contemporary — polyurethane foam and rubbers used for pattern and mold making to polyester resin, fiberglass and epoxies used in casting, I fostered a set of skills in problem solving and physical adroitness that I have translated into the discipline of furniture design and fabrication and the construction of built in custom elements for the home.

As an artist I regard each square inch of a particular piece as relevant, demanding of meticulous consideration. I strive to establish a dialogue between form, function and material through which the best design and workmanship shines forth.
