T. Bayley Wharton


 

About the artist

T. Bayley Wharton's furniture creations follow one simple yet firm design philosophy: let the wood speak for itself. This honest approach starts at the very beginning of the creative process with the selection of only high quality wood. From there, it is just a matter of allowing the natural beauty of the wood to stand out. Wharton uses natural finishes rather than stains to preserve the wood's original color. He also avoids unnecessary ornamentation, choosing instead to focus on the joinery itself to bring out the "artwork" of the "craftwork." Among the various artists that have influenced him are George Nakashima, Wendell Castle and Sam Maloof as well as designers like Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles and Ray Eames. One look at his unique pieces will reveal Wharton's signature simplicity and strength, with a touch of intrigue, that are the driving forces behind his work.
