Barry Middleton / Woodsongs
Wood - Functional
Hometown: Pottsville, PA
As a young man, Barry Middleton worked on furniture refinishing projects with his father.
Through hands on experience, occasional workshops and talking with other artists, Barry has developed his own approach to running a successful woodcrafting business.
He feels his limited art education is more of a strength than a hindrance since it allows him to work in an unrestrained manner. He prefers to be guided by his own imagination, the characteristics of the woods he uses and the laws of physics and nature.
Barry creates sculpted wooden panels for furniture, doors and wall decor pieces. His artistic door panels, often featuring multiple woods, add tremendous visual impact to any kitchen, bedroom or hallway.
For custom orders, Barry works closely with each client to ensure his design complements the existing decor and enhances their home or office.
