In addition to the Lambovich series and the Classics work it is not uncommon to utilize other craftsmen in their medium whether it is stone, metals, special effect finishes and more. Several pieces here attest to their contribution, without which the piece would be half as much. Much like in the days of old craftsmen often had very specific specialties and work from the cabinet shop would tour to the various other shops for these specialties to take place.
When creating new designs, the term composing is most appropriate. In music a composition has many parts and performers to play that music. In a complex and sophisticated furniture design often other artists are needed to express the complete design fully. I happily work with these other artists because of the creative spirit and synergy that is developed from such a collaboration.
