Michael Murphy

About the Artist

Best in Show recipient at last years show.

In a day where most products are stamped out by machines, Michael Murphy holds strong to the fading tradition of taking the time and energy to craft each and every piece by hand. It may take hundreds of hours to design and build a single piece of furniture to ensure that fine details such as joinery, aesthetics and grain orientation, all work harmoniously together to bring the final product to life. Each creation has its own soul and depth that can only be found in something that has been worked and touched by the hands of a craftsman. This attention to detail in turn manifests a tangible object that connects on a level much deeper than mere furniture, but a thread that intertwines the generational gap by the enjoyment that comes from the years of daily use and the memories of family.
