Crafting a piece is in some ways similar to crafting a message; it goes beyond the mere creation of furniture with functions of seating or storage. The real challenge is to balance design with imperfection, incompleteness and timelessness. The willingness to convey this hinges on the opportunity to transmit new possibilities of meaning. It is possible to construct a sort of dialogue between the technique, the material and artisan.

The straight edges, the defined angles, and the fluidity of the pieces are influenced by nature and Colombian crafts. Themes and concepts come together in a shape with the capacity to contain myriad of perspectives. The relationship between the object and the viewer is not something that needs to be explained, but experienced.

With the awareness of how the material is able to be transformed in a myriad of shapes at the hands of a craftsman, we surrender into a state of attention. 

This traces; along with the pursuing of the artisan, to translate a intangible into a candor respond, creating an object with an innate narrative which can bespeaks about the process and techniques that exists embodied into the piece.

CarmWorks creates handmade furniture influenced by the observation in nature & inspired by three simple realities: nothing last, nothing is complete and nothing is perfect.
