March 5, 2-4pm Ashley Eriksmoen: From Vikings to Lasers: One Woodworker's Journey Seeking Appropriate Technologies for Creative Work (Lecture)
Fee: $5 suggested donation
To construct complex, asymmetrical, organic forms, sometimes the best technology involves 21st century lasers, and sometimes it requires hand methods used by 9th century Vikings. An understanding of both can bring the best possible solution in Eriksmoens sculptural furniture work. Ashley Jameson Eriksmoen has exhibited at galleries and museums nationwide
including the Fuller Museum and Pritam and Eames, and is the recipient of numerous awards and grants including the Norwegian Marshall Fund. She has taught woodworking and design courses and workshops at several schools, including College of the Redwoods and California College of Art (and Craft). Eriksmoen currently creates in her woodshop in Oakland.
