|The calling to transcend
function to create art is evident in the work of the world’s
most highly regarded furniture makers. This multimedia voyage into
the history and process of furniture making suggests just how elegantly
John and Thomas Seymour fulfilled the Boston community’s needs
for places to eat, sleep, and write letters.
Robert Mussey, the guest curator of
Luxury and Innovation and principal author of the accompanying
book, discusses the work and vision of John and Thomas Seymour. Phil
Lowe, Master Furniture Maker, Director of The Furniture Institute
of Massachusetts, demonstrates the art of planing, veneering, and
inlay using traditional tools.
