Atlas and the CO2 Burden
After receiving his Ph.D. from RPI, Ward held several research and management positions, and is one of the founders and a former executive of ATMI, a Danbury, CT high tech company. He has had an interest in carving and woodworking since being a teenager. His formal education in fine woodworking includes course work at North Bennet Street School and, more recently at Bucks County Community College with Mark Sfirri.
While my leanings have been toward early American furniture, and its making and restoration, Mark Sfirri recently introduced me to the world of contemporary wood art. I am fascinated by the range and drama of work being produced today and find it inspirational in my own work. Currently, I have been taking features of various historical pieces and incorporating them into music and plant stands.
