A Boston Gallery Unites Two Furniture Makers Who Find Expressiveness in Natural Material
By Anna Furman
With his medley of European and Asian influences, Thomas Hucker fabricates clean-lined furniture from oak, palm, walnut, and various exotic woods. Yuri Kobayashi’s work falls within a similar aesthetic realm, though it often includes even more diverse materials, sometimes in pieces that are closer to sculpture than furniture. At Gallery NAGA in Boston, an impressive new show intertwines their practices.
