Fine 'Utilis Art'
Al McClain is a second generation Studio Furniture maker. Over thirty years ago, Mr. McClain made it his focus to develop technically advanced productions of Scandanavian Modern forms. Each piece in the Collection exemplifies the extraordinarily unique skills Mr. McClain has attained for producing perhaps the finest usable wood furniture available anywhere.
A WORD ABOUT STUDIO FURNITURE
and how we got here...
The Studio Furniture movement in America began after WWII, and delivered many prominent makers. Studio Furniture is considered to be art, reflecting the skill of the artist to interpret forms, and produce works in the extraordinary. Al McClain has pursued the development of extraordinarily advanced interpretations of forms rooted in the Scandanvian Modern era.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Al McClain's 'time has come.' From learning introductory woodworking skills in high school shop class, to taking a break to become a renound, professional rock drummer, to entering the world of Studio Furniture as a developing maker while supporting himself as a sought after case goods maker and fine antique restorationist, Mr. McClain has painstakingly achieved a uniqueness as 'one of the very best,' if not 'the best.' -McClain Studios
The McClain Studios Collections have been developed over time, and have never been offered for sale. This unique and limited body of work is now available to those who seek the finest in usable value. Each piece is a signed original, and commissions for new works are desired.
