Garry Knox Bennett is among the most unconventional and irreverent artists working today. He’s an internationally known furniture maker (and jewelry maker, sculptor, painter and roach-clip inventor) whose work is represented in many of the world’s most important collections.
He’s also hilarious and opinionated…as you’ll see below. We went to Oakland to film a “Woodworking Legends” video (and asked Garry’s long-time friend and fellow luminary Alf Sharp to conduct the interview) – that full-length video interview and retrospective of Garry’s life and work will be out in Spring 2017. But we also asked Alf to sit down with Garry and ask a handful of questions, just for fun. (Note: The responses contain some profanity; if that offends you, please don’t watch.)
