Mark Blech I am an artist by education and a commercial artist by trade. My furniture is a melding of the 2. Form and function. I try and push the boundaries of both.Â I useÂ reclaimed heart or old growth pineÂ , or oak, that I buy locally. That is very important to me, to not be a burden on my enviroment but to also work with wood that has a sense of history, where you can see the age on the wood. As I get older, I find I can appreciate the wear lines on a surface more and more. My work plays with alot of ideas about structure and the ideas of building blocks. Figuratively and literally. I hope you enjoy the work.
