Karen McBride creates unique furniture forms with a magical combination of structural and aesthetic elements that push beyond traditional boundaries. Her work is driven by the allure of flowing curves and the desire to achieve a perfect balance between grace and utility.
In 2001 Karen dismantled, relocated and restored a 200-year-old log house to serve as her studio. Hand hewn logs, carved white oak stair risers and trim created with antique molding planes grace her work space in Dunrobin, Ontario, Canada.
In addition to commissioned work, Karen shares her passion by teaching and writing about her craft.
