Chest of Drawers by DAVID EBNER
Walnut (all from the same tree).

is synonymous with
the finest work in American furniture making since 1981.
As the country's oldest established gallery
associated with the American studio furniture movement,
PRITAM & EAMES represents a celebrated group
(Vivian Beer, Ted Blachly, Andy Buck, Wendell Castle, Tim Coleman, Michael Cullen,
John Dunnigan, David Ebner, Hank Gilpin, Duncan Gowdy, Noel & Janene Hilliard,
Thomas Hucker, Michael Hurwitz,
Tony Kenway, James Krenov,
Gary Magakis, John Makepeace,
Alphonse Mattia, Judy Kensley McKie, Don Miller, Brian Newell,
Richard Scott Newman,
Craig Nutt, Jere Osgood, Timothy Philbrick, Zivko Radenkov,
Greg Smith, Richard Tannen, Fran Taubman,
Tim Wells, Howard Werner)
whose distinctly personal work is
convincing proof of America's strength in the decorative arts.
In addition to the one-of-a-kind and limited edition furniture,
the gallery initiated its Art at Home series that features paintings and drawings by
Linda Capello, Aubrey Grainger, Karen Kluglein, and photography by Jennifer Alnwick,
as well as functional work in ceramics, glass, holloware and jewelry.

In 1990-91, Bebe Pritam Johnson and Warren Eames Johnson interviewed
14 of these artist-craftsmen who were pivotal to the gallery in its first decade.
These conversations have been turned into a book,
Speaking of Furniture: Conversations with 14 American Masters,
which has just been published by The Artist Book Foundation. In their words,
James Krenov, Wendell Castle, Judy Kensley McKie, Thomas Hucker,
as well as Jere Osgood, Richard Scott Newman, David Ebner, Hank Gilpin,
Alphonse Mattia, John Dunnigan, Wendy Maruyama, James Schriber,
Timothy Philbrick and Michael Hurwitz
why they do what they do and why
they chose furniture as a vehicle for artistic expression.
