Stephen Courtney Guest Lectured at Cerritos College Woodworking Department
On Sunday, March 9th, 2014, at 3:00 p.m., accomplished furniture designer, maker and fine art photographer, Stephen Courtney, guest lectured at Cerritos College.
Stephen presented to fifty students on his high end cabinetry business, and "Studio Furniture" uncompromising original design.
“Stephen has a few pieces at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. He showed the students pictures of the pencil drawings, which were then drawn in a 3-d modeling program. One take away was that real forfeiture design is no limited to wood alone, Bronze Brass Sterling Silver Nickel glass were incorporated in some of his pieces. Some of his pieces fetch over six figures. He is a genius - one of those guys that can't sit still always growing and challenging himself to reach further. He is an inspiration to the students!” said Woodworking Professor, Anthony Fortner.
