for this artist and
Joe Kovecses has been working with exotic woods for nearly three decades, creating a distinctly unique assortment of items incorporating the idea of form following function. Joe’s most recognizable designs are his ikebana floral planters all of which exhibit a strong Asian influence.
Born and raised in the beautiful Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, Joe developed a deep appreciation and love of nature. After studying architectural drafting he worked as a builder. During that time he discovered a passion for working with exotic woods and applied his knowledge of architectural design to create a refreshingly new approach to woodworking, attempting to capture natural shapes and colors and compliment them with his own ideas.
