Rustic furniture is showing up in the most unusual places. It stands in the midst of the most modern furniture in a place of honor as a piece of folk art or sculpture. This one-time country mainstay, now graces the most elegant apartments of New York City or Beverly Hills. Larry Hawkins is one of the leading producers of twig mosaic furniture, a variety of the rustic motif that utilizes the great variety of color and texture in the bark of twigs and trees to create wonderful patterns on the furniture surfaces. The results are fantastic creations, destined to take a predominant place in any room setting. Larry takes the reader/craftsman step-by-step through the process of making a three drawer chest. The techniques learned along the way can be applied to any number of furniture forms, many of which are shown in the gallery. Every step is illustrated with a full color photograph and a precise description of the processes involved.
