Carter Sio ‘76 and Charlie Sizer ’22 Chosen for Works in Wood Exhibition

Charlie Sizer ’22 made this coffee table from walnut and maple. Carter Sio '76 made the chair from driftwood and objects found along the coast of Down East Maine

Woodworking teacher, Carter Sio ‘76 and student Charlie Sizer ’22, were both selected to be featured in the Works in Wood, New Hope Arts 22nd Annual Juried Exhibition. 

Works in Wood honors the rich cultural heritage of Bucks County woodworking while celebrating the new visions of the contemporary artists who reside in the region and beyond. As a national juried show, Works in Wood features artwork from the finest talent. 

Carter has been directing the woodworking program at George School since 1984 and is also a studio furniture maker with clients all along the east coast. His work has appeared in many publications and his works are featured in just as many private collections. 

“The bench is made from walnut and white oak,” Carter explained. “The chair, called flotsam and jetsam, is made from driftwood and objects found along the coast of Down East Maine.”  

Charlie’s work of art is a magnificent coffee table made of walnut and maple. I had a great time making this piece,” said Charlie. “I found this project to be something that I was subconsciously thinking about. I caught myself admiring work in my environment and taking inspiration from the architecture around campus. This free edge, Nakashima-inspired bench is my first piece to be put into an art show, and I am excited to put my work on display. It always amazes me when I take a raw slab of wood and transform it into a functional work of art.” 

 You can find more information about the exhibition on the New Hope Arts website.
