Burnham

Celebrating Maine Craft Weekend
Saturday + Sunday 8am-5pm. James Macdonald has been creating custom furniture featuring marquetry and inlay work at his studio in Burnham, Maine since 1989. Before setting out on his own he spent time cabinetmaking, guitarmaking, and boatbuilding in Connecticut. Possibly one of the last back-to-the-landers, he moved to Maine in 1984, built a passive-solar house, and settled in. Since then he has been designing and making fine furniture to the highest standards of craftsmanship. He strives to create work that suits the needs of his clients as well as their fancy. Recently James has been focusing on marquetry, the creating of pictures using thin veneers of different kinds of wood. Initially learning the technique from marquetry master Silas Kopf, James has gone on to assist Mr. Kopf in the teaching of this craft during weeklong workshops at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine. Marquetry can be used to embellish a furniture design or can be displayed on the wall. Please contact James for further information about his work.

”Squeeze the clay a little and a face, a hand, or an abstract form appears. Shape it. Develop it.
"Push the form in another direction and a gesture or a movement shows itself. Bring it out.
“Pull the clay or stretch the clay and the form takes final shape.
“Repeat the motions and soon the piece gives you its reason for being created.”
