Chris Oosenbrug - Karolyn Eggler

Textiles, Wood

"Chris has been a cabinetmaker/woodturner since the early 1980’s. He has exhibited turned bowls in select galleries in Montreal, Toronto and Chicago and participated in high-end craft shows in Canada and the US (One of a Kind- Toronto, Chicago). Chris’ appreciation of trees, architecture, furniture design, and music all influence his work. He currently produces salad bowls and custom turned work; recently he has built Arts and Craftsman Style chairs, specifically Gustave Stickley designs.

Karolyn has designed and produced for the giftware market since 1990, supplying gift stores across Canada and exhibiting at One of a Kind-Toronto and Chicago. Karolyn’s appreciation of natural textile fabrics (silk, cotton, linen, wool), craftmanship and attention to fine detail are all important components of her creations. She continues to produce denim aprons with tartan accents and currently is working with vintage linen for home accessories."
