Jack of all trades: Jack Mauch, a woodworker, metal-smith, ceramicist, animator
It took him a while but at last my dear friend Jack Mauch has finally launched his website. For a few years Jack and I taught woodworking at Harvard University, Eliot House. Now Jack is a Core Student at Penland School of Crafts in NC. Penland is one of the Nation’s most prestigious craft teaching institutions. His work, both in wood and in metal is intriguing, often humorous, and above all meticulously executed and enriched with perfect details. Here are some images of Jack’s latest creations and a link to his website…
