About this Artist
"When I build tables, I often think of the people who will sit around them and fill the room with joy and laughter. From my windows of consciousness, to my energy and passion to build in balance with nature's gift something of utility, to creating an object of lasting beauty, that is my gift and my joy. "
Jeffrey Hills will often be inspired for a project by a beautiful piece of wood. First he sees the wood and then seeks to bring out the life that the wood holds and represents. His goal is to give the wood a future as a well-crafted and engineered piece of furniture.
In all of his work, Hills uses precise joinery, clean lines, and attention to species selection and grain management. All joinery is done by hand and tool. Finishes are hand rubbed oils, varnishes, and wax.
Hills is primarily a self-taught woodworker and furniture designer, with 50 years of experience. He has studied with Robert Meadow of The Lutherie the art and techniques of Japanese woodworking. All of Hills' hand tools are Japanese in design and made by master forgers. Jeffrey Hills has been designated as a Taos "Living Master."
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
