Object Lesson is a monthly First Friday speaker series that will open wide the cases of the Museum’s Collection through the perspectives of individuals from the community. This month we are focused on the Old City Neighborhood and partnering with Elferth’s Alley to discuss a mid-19th-century hat form and explore the world of multi-axis turning.
Mark Sfirri received his BFA and MFA in furniture design at Rhode Island School of Design. He is primarily a furniture maker and sculptor working in wood but is also a teacher, researcher, writer, collaborator, photographer, and printmaker. His specialty is multi-axis spindle turning, an area that he has been exploring since the early 1990s. He has lectured and demonstrated his techniques throughout North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Norway. His work is included in the permanent collection of twenty-eight public institutions.

This event is free to the public. The Museum for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
