Joe Marshall is originally from Ireland but currently resides in Columbia, Missouri with his wife and twin sons. Self-taught, Marshall seeks out a variety of woods, sourcing from around the Mid-Missouri area. His pieces are simple, elegant and true to the original beauty of the material. Because Marshall tries to preserve many of the original qualities of the wood, his work becomes an interesting marriage: a tailored, Mid-Century modern aesthetic juxtaposed against the natural, and sometimes, irregular form of his chosen medium.
