Mark Del Guidice
"I approach my craft from a personal perspective. Influenced by the history and tradition of studio furniture making, I infuse my pieces with my own aesthetic and creative vision."
Mark Del Guidice puts a strong emphasis on every aspect of creating his furniture from the original design concept to sketches, model making, and mockups. He relishes each step in the creative process.
Del Guidice works with a variety of forms, woods, and surface decorations. He prefers to use fine woods that will be a strong background to his colorful surfaces' incised markings that he calls "intuitive hieroglyphs." These hieroglyphs are meant to evoke personal interpretations from the viewer.
His pieces are often called "sculptural" furniture. They are a distinctive combination of the decorative with the purely functional. His style invites the viewer to experience furniture from this entirely new perspective.
