Mike DeForest

Michael DeForest is a furniture maker and artist who teaches at the Oregon College of Art and Craft and at Catlin Gabel School. He’s evolved from creating balanced, high-end furniture to a much quirkier style. The pieces he prefers now have uneven outlines and they’re painted and carved with symbolic figures.
