Workshop: Furniture

Sylvie Rosenthal is a woodworker and sculptor. Over the last 10 years she has gained recognition for her intricate and detail-oriented furniture and sculpture, contraptions and art objects, that are infused with humor and steeped in the impossible.

From snakes swallowing teapots to kinetic birds; from stacking chests to store hopes; to animals seamlessly blended with architectural spaces, the wood and steel creations are shown nationally at both museums and galleries. She designs and builds, and reinvents technique through a combination of experimentation and material knowledge.
