George Nakashima

For any possible "Shepherd's Pie" readers who aren't on a personal level with me. The postless week was due to my trip to Puerto Rico. Now I'm back.

George Nakashima is a woodworker and furniture designer who made beautiful honest objects. Using heavily varnished yet strange chunks of wood he built mininal, yet mesmerizing things. The google image search above displays a wide range of his work, and designboom has a great feature on him. Gives me inspiration to see our human function needs in nature's shapes.
