Libby studied at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship and earned a Masters at the Rhode Island School of Design. She received the 2010 John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship, which is given to individuals “who represent a great new talent and demonstrate dedication to the craft of furniture making.” That describes her perfectly.
I’m introducing a new feature here at Furnitude. I’ll do my best at the end of each post to include links or buttons to each furniture maker’s social media sites. I want to make it easy to follow them and share their work. Please help me spread the word about great furniture makers by liking, twittering, instagraming and pinteresting their work.
