Featured Artists and Craftspeople

We would like to take a moment to make mention of a few individuals kind enough to contribute to Rise Again.

Eric Boyer

To view one of Eric Boyer's mesh sculptures in person is to only scratch the surface of understanding his fascination with the human form. Eric's love of richly expressive hand-shaped steel mesh breathes distinct life and movement each piece generating a playful inner storyline. Based in Portland, Oregon within the CODA Gallery Studios on Distillery Row, Eric continually produces impressive work and is a valuable member of the Portland artist community.

Cantilever and Press is a product of Vancouver, BC resident Matt Hornland. Using reclaimed wood Matt designs and builds functional accessories for the home and office. Much of his work explores the interesting juxtaposition of sleek urban minimalism and the organic chaos of natural form. As stand-alone objects these hand-crafted "wood goods" have an understated way of adding warmth to a room, and in their functionality they politely compliment the items hanging from them.

We are honored that Eric Boyer and Cantilever and Press, as well as the rest of our artists put forth the thought and consideration to donate to a good cause. Please stop by Saint Furniture on the evening of Friday, April 1st, to view their work, help us raise money for the Japan Relief Efforts.
