Wood - Functional

Hometown: Timberville, VA

Artist Website

With over 4 decades of professional wood crafting experience, John Robson creates decorative furniture items and accessories using woods native to his Shenandoah Valley home.

Beginning with sawmill leftovers, driftwood and forged wood, he studies each piece to design a one-of-a-kind item which highlights the natural beauty and character of each piece of wood. His finished products retain many of the rustic qualities of the raw wood.

The Standing People business name signifies his respect for the wood he uses in his crafting and acknowledges its earlier life as a tree.

John lives with his wife, Sue, and their cats in an old bank barn which rests of the banks of the Shenandoah River in Virginia.
