Artist #5: Jack Larimore

Artist #5: Jack Larimore

Jack Larimore, he spent his childhood in the Cherry Orchard region of Northeastern Michigan. He graduated of Michigan State University in 1973 with, a landscape architect major. Since 1983, Larimore worked by himself as a sculptor and furniture designer. Also He used to work as a professor in the Crafts Department at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, as an Advisory Board Member of The Furniture Society, as a Trustee for the Center for Art in Wood and a Board member at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center. Larimore describes his works as “minimalist material and form explorations”. He uses mediums such as wood, steel, concrete and recycled plastics to create organic forms.

I choose this artist because I really loved his idea of expressing the furniture legs as part of natures. His design of furniture was really unique to me and I also had similar idea of making a table that ants carry it.
