"Jason Koharik was born and raised in Bedford Ohio. And is now a working artist and designer based in Los Angeles, California. From a small studio in Echo Park and working from a timeless method, he has designed and handcrafted a sophisticated line of lighting and furniture. His work is inspired by the fluid beauty and natural forms of the Art Nouveau period, as well as an effort to create a unique silhouette that becomes an anomaly in an interior. Each piece takes on a one-of-a-kind quality. Working with natural materials such as wood, steel, brass and leather he finds a balance between furniture and sculpture. In addition to his own designs, Jason Koharik is also a collector of interesting and rare vintage furniture and lighting. Pieces which he often transforms, with his own unique upholstery, hand stitched leather,metal and wood working skills, to create a piece of furniture which stands alone. Jason Koharik is a self taught artist and craftsman whose methods and work are always evolving. "
She always lives at the seas, Once in my mind, in my dream
And she sees every day more like cubes
Says we don't see the signs that we use
Just look, see the signs that we use
And you'll see every day more like a cube." (nick mulvey, april)
