About

Veneer is sawn 1/16" thick from a rare 1,200 year bog oak board discovered in the rivers of Eastern Europe. Having a range of color from near black on one edge to nutty brown on the other. Marquetry squares have the dark color either on the edge or in the center in an alternating pattern and this screen displays the same marquetry squares on both sides. The screen is an ideal display of this quilt-like design. Designs can be adapted to other forms- leave it to your imagination- We welcome commissions More history on our bog oak: Three hundred years ago a Turkish ship laden with bog oak logs dug from a marsh near the Dnieper River was sunk in a battle with Russian soldiers. The logs, carbon dated at 1200 years old, stayed on the river bottom for another 300 years until recently recovered by divers searching for WW II souvenirs. Minerals from the river water penetrated and stained the wood nearest the bark, but left the heartwood a natural oak color. Veneers were sawn from them displaying a striking transition of colors from near black at the edge to warm brown in the center, with subtle greens in between. These are arranged here in square patterns or long diagonals in a vibrant display of color.

About the Maker

Thomas Newman Studio

Thomas Newman studied art history at Swarthmore College and enjoyed making things in his father’s basement workshop. A self-taught woodworker, he has had a fifty-year career that began by restoring antiques. It was a lesson, not only in a wide range of woodworking techniques, but also in various traditional furniture styles. He developed a specialized table-making business and built more than 500 custom tables. Over this period his work has been featured by nearly every major design firm in New York City. Vladimir Krasnogorov joined the studio in 2001 and is the principal designer of its new line of sculptural, carved-wood furniture. He grew up in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and always dreamed of being a furniture maker. Coming of age during the collapse of the Soviet Union, he searched for new designs to liberate his creative spirit from the oppressive boredom of bureaucratic Soviet style. This led him to Kazimir Malevich’ Suprematism and the Russian Avant-Garde of a century ago. His work, in a real sense, is an echo of the revolutionary design ideas of that era, now set in a post-Soviet world. His designs reflect an effort to achieve balance, harmony and proportion in new forms for a vision that is entirely his own.
