    About Howard Werner

    Howard Werner received a degree in woodwork and furniture design from The School for American Craftsmen at Rochester Institute of Technology. His greatest inspiration, however, comes from the world of sculpture and the work of Brancusi and Noguchi. Howard has been direct-carving sculpture and furniture from large tree sections since the mid-1970s. His work is influenced by both classical forms from Greece and Italy, as well as primitive carvings from Africa and Oceana. The tools and raw materials he employs are important to the finished work. His process is evident in the rough chain sawn surfaces and the untouched natural sections of the trees that are prominent on many pieces.

    Howard has been awarded grants from The National Endowment for the Arts and The New York State Fellowship for the Arts. His work is in numerous collections including: The Museum of Art and Design, The Mint Museum, The Arkansas Arts Center, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, The Rochester Institute of Technology, Arizona State University Museum and The Mobile Museum of Art.
