Roger Brodt showcase at Hands
Hands Gallery’s featured artist is Roger Brodt from Miters
Roger has been a member of Hands Gallery since 2008, and his work will be spotlighted from Aug. 16 to 29.
Brodt builds furniture using both conventional woodworking principles and traditional Japanese joinery. Japanese joinery utilizes techniques that use the wood itself to join two pieces together.
Some say this is a dying art, but Brodt is committed to keeping this artistry in woodworking alive. He also incorporates metal, glass, stone and other mediums into his furniture.
Brodt said he is inspired by both nature and technology and strives to bring the two together. He has crafted pieces that range from modern rustic with barn wood to contemporary fine furnishing.
Brodt and Miters Touch can be found at his studio in Valle Crucis, Hands Gallery, various businesses and public places, such as the Temple of the High Country and Appalachian State University’s Belk Library, and in many private collections. He is also a frequent donator to the Fur Ball, An Appalachian Summer Festival and the Valle Crucis Community Park auction.
