"A successful piece of furniture is born at the confluence of simplicity of design and utility of form".
David Pye often talked and wrote about the "workmanship of risk" - the premise that the quality of any piece made by a craftsman is continually at risk during its making. And it is precisely this quality that Richard Oedel brings to the design and making of his furniture.
"The design, function and craftsmanship are inseparable parts of the pieces that I make.Richard Oedel
The lyric qualities of the materials are chosen to enhance that design aesthetic.
My objective is to make furniture that enriches the lives of others."
