Writing, Writing, Writing


Besides the studio work, I’ve been busy writing and editing an article I’ve submitted for publication. Trying to boil down Fisher’s furniture production into 3,000 +/- words was hard, especially since this is my first go at a polished manuscript on the topic. With some revision help from a few colleagues, I think it came together. Perhaps one of these days you will see it... I’ll keep you informed.

I’m pretty much set to go for the lecture/tour on the 26th. That one is titled “The Fashioning Hand of Jonathan Fisher: An Inside Look at the Parson’s Furniture”. It will take place Saturday the 26th 1:00pm at the Fisher House in Blue Hill. I will give a brief introductory talk about how furniture making fit into Fisher’s life. The real meat and potatoes of this event though is the guided tour through the house. I will be taking the group through and pulling out drawers, etc.  I’ll be highlighting a few noteworthy features and discussing attribution issues.

I am also working through the powerpoint for my lecture in August at the Wilson Museum in Castine, ME. This one is on preindustrial Maine furniture makers.  It’s on August 13th at 1:00pm. More info here: http://www.wilsonmuseum.org/calendar_details.html#Aug_13
