Anto's Message

Growing up in Hollywood, California, I was surrounded

with visual enrichment. The variety of motion pictures,

glamorous architecture, whimsical landscaping, superb

museums and unique people made me well versed in

the visual arts. For the past twenty years I have lived and

worked in Upstate New York. My work now reflects a

certain metropolitan sensibility, infused by the primal

beauty of the Finger Lakes Region.


Most of us now realize that certain human needs are left

dissatisfied by cold industrial progress. It is not easy to

cozy up to melamine, chrome and vinyl. We long for

familiar elements from our origin, even a small memento

of the Garden, where we used to walk with God in the

cool of the day.


While natural materials fuel my imagination, function remains the forefront of my designs. What I build is not going to hang on a wall, or be displayed in a corner. By definition, furniture is a useful object for the home, and it must endure daily use. I am sometimes called an artist, but I don't really make art. What I make is more like a beautiful tool.
