It’s been a while since I posted work on this blog for a critique. For those of you new to this, I offer to post pictures of readers projects and invite any and all to offer constructive feedback. By constructive, I mean you can offer up any thoughts you have as long as they are paired with thoughtful reasons. For example, you can say what you don’t like about it, IF you offer suggestions or at least hints at what you would do to improve it. Likewise your thoughts on what you like about a work are welcome, but please expand on why. Critiques can be invaluable to the person offering up their work, but also to those giving feedback as it helps you to think deeply about what does or doesn’t work. With that said I’ll let Tom Morris give a short introduction in his own words. Your thoughtful comments are appreciated. These projects are architectural interior details. I’m posting Tom’s rendering and then a photo of the work itself.
First, I am not a carpenter, I am an painter/artist. I got this job to help in the design of a large house in the country. Without going into detail, I have done brick work, interior room design, and even a small outside garden building. On the inside of the house I have designed a lot of finish work as well as built ins. I think I will be designing some free standing furniture in the future. So thought it would be fun to get response to some of the things I have done which are basically built ins. All the designs where done for specific spaces, i.e. the size and dimension of the spaces already existed.
