About Stoel Burrowes : Stoel Burrowes is a fine woodworker, artist and university lecturer. He is greatly admired by his students and colleagues. Stoel's furniture designs craft the poetic language of material, form and function. His art work plays in the narrow area between life and death. His background in woodwork and furniture design has been the foundation of creative scholarship, and he has had work exhibited in several national and international venues, including the Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia and the National Conference of The Furniture Society in Durham, the A’ Design Awards and Competition in Italy, the Interior Design Educators' Council in High Point and Georgia, and the Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro. Stoel's creative scholarship has played a major role in his teaching and mentoring of students. He has made several conference presentations that explore the relationship of making and learning as demonstrated in his work.
STATEMENT OF ART:
40 years of experience and research in woodcraft and furniture design have led to the designs of my chairs. The technology and economy of the Scandinavian, the Windsor and the Shaker Chairs inform my design most profoundly. The modernity of the chair design contrasts with the traditional economy and craft. Modern and contemporary must include life. So, I play in that zone of creative space between simplicity and ambiguity where archetype and generation reside.
