PRODUCT STORY
Jeff says: The inspiration for Rollercoaster of Love comes from my lifelong influence of many woodworking, poet, and industrial designers -- including the pioneering work of Charles Eames, Alvar Aalto, Sori Yanagi and Tapio Wirkkala. My love of trees and wood can be equated to a phrase from John Muir.

“A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease. Every hidden cell is throbbing with music and life, every fiber thrilling like harp strings, while incense is ever flowing from the balsam bells and leaves. No wonder the hills and groves were God's first temples, and the more they are cut down and hewn into cathedrals and churches, the farther off and dimmer seems the Lord himself.” -John Muir.

Jeff's Rollercoaster of Love is inspired by a beautiful John Muir quote. Take a look at the product story to see how he was influenced to design this specific sculpture.
