Meet The Artist: Judy Kensley McKie

Judy Kensley McKie is recognized as a premiere figure in the American studio furniture movement.

Her furniture in carved and painted wood and in cast bronze, marble, stone, and resin occupies a singular position in the field. The work is infused with a lively awareness of modernist and contemporary art and also of the approaches to design to be found in indigenous cultures throughout the world. Playfulness and power are summoned by her incorporation of sculptural, totemic animal forms. (courtesy of Gallery Naga. Click to read more.)



Don't these have a fantastic whimsy to them? My favorite is this rabbit table. The lines are elegant and lyrical and yet I'm reminded of something almost ancient Egyptian - as if they are keeping watch.

Fabulous, natural forms. I could see some of these pieces in an airy garden room.
