“When I see a geometric shape or pattern that inspires me and I pair the shapes with various woods, I try to sense how the wearer will feel as they put it on or see themselves in the mirror.”
Raised on the rocky coast of New England, Henry Wischusen grew up with an appreciation for his surroundings and traditional woodworking. As a kid, he made all kinds of things out of wood, from tiny sculptures to boats. After more than three decades in the corporate world, he returned to his roots, creating organic works of art with a focus on sustainability. By using intricately woven wood veneers, he's able to let the material's natural beauty shine through while maintaining his committment to keeping forests intact.
