John Strauss: A Sculptural Perspective
April 16 - July 25, 2010
Chicago born sculptor, John Strauss, creates fine furniture in his downtown Canton studio. With a sculptor’s eye he infuses his work with fluid carved and shaped details and lush finishes. John became inspired by the subtle curves, elegant woods, intricate craftsmanship and design possibilities that Art Deco opened up for furniture. His work is about bringing together those two strands.

“I was trained as a sculptor and worked with wood and metal, and realized early on that the joint or coming together of two parts was where the energy of a piece was focused.”
