Studio Visit: Black Creek Mercantile & Trading Co. in the Hudson Valley

November 1, 2010

Our fellow design watcher Jerome Buttrick introduced us to the work of Joshua Vogel, an architect turned wood artisan and furniture designer. Vogel is a cofounder of BDDW (the Tribeca furniture gallery that's produced some the past decade's most covetable pieces), co-designer of the recently opened Sawkille Co. Furniture & Fine Goods, and owner of Black Creek Mercantile & Trading Co.—a studio that produces sculptural wood turnings, limited edition furniture, and "meaningful small products." For more information or to schedule a studio appointment, email Vogel at Black Creek Mercantile.

Above: "Using the wood lathe is unlike any other aspect of woodworking," Vogel says. "The nature of turning requires a prolonged state of concentration; the process itself demands a type of meditative effort not unlike throwing a clay pot, only it is completely reductive, like carving stone."
