"My goal as a furniture designer and maker is to always push the boundaries of surface and design with the objects that I produce."
Kevin Irvin spent the early part of his career as a wood sculptor, incorporating various utilitarian and architectonic forms into his work. He made the transition to furniture in the mid 1990's, and has always maintained a sculptural feel to the work he produces.
Irvin often covers drawer fronts, table tops, and furniture legs with literally hundreds of overlapping shaped veneers to produce an almost skin-like quality. This attention to surface design provides for an interesting visual experience and a tactile one, as well.
Kevin Irvin began his training under the tutelage of John McNaughton at the University of Southern Indiana. He received his MFA from Arizona State University in 1985. Irvin has maintained a studio in Phoenix for over twenty years.
