“Most Vermont craftspeople work in studios located in or close to their residences. These are places of production and inspiration located in downtowns as well as at the ends of dirt roads. Wherever their locations, they are exciting places to visit because they reflect the dynamic yet organized process that is used to produce the finished work of art.

The studio itself is enormously informative because you can see at a glance how the artist works. You see the swatches that have not been chosen for the quilt or the work that is experimental or not serious enough for the gallery. Buying or ordering work during an Open Studio sale is a unique experience because you have the opportunity to speak to the artist directly.”

While you’re on your studio tour of Southern Vermont, we’d love to invite you to visit us as well. Our showroom is home to a handful of one of a kind artisan furniture designs from world class craftsmen from around Vermont. Their furniture designs are true works of art, and are never replicated. Our friendly staff will be here all weekend to welcome guests & answer any questions about these unique artisan pieces.

If you’d like more information about Spring Open Studio Weekend, visit the Vermont Crafts Council website.

As the Vermont Crafts Council 19th Annual Open Studio Weekend approaches I thought you might want to get a sneak preview of some of Vermont's finest furniture makers who will be opening their studio doors for you next weekend.

 

 

 

 

Dan Mosheim started Dorset Custom Furniture over 30 years ago to pursue his passion in the design and building of exquisite custom furniture.  He and his family and fellow woodworking artisans hand-built the studio they work in today in Dorset Vermont.

Dan's blog has become quite famous in the world of fine woodworking. I love reading it because he's always got a fascinating project going and he's very generous about sharing his insights, methods and photos.

Dan's projects are big and small, but always elegant.

 

 

I've looked everywhere for a photo of Dan that I could post here, but that seems to be the one thing he's kinda stingy about.  He did post his CV online though and it's very endearing.  I think you'll enjoy it.

 

Stop by and meet Dan and his family of talented artisans next weekend at Dorset Custom Furniture.  They are some of the best in the business.  Here's the map.
