The examples of work listed here include many organ cases carving projects ; these are designed with two main factors in mind.
Their aesthetics and uses.
The organ cases appearances are greatly influenced by the interior in where they are to be displayed.
Their styles and proportions are dictated by their surrounding elements, architectural and ornamental, the same guidelines can be applied for designing a piece of furniture. Another important factor related to the proportion of a organ case is the available space of an interior so being a musical instrument will require the expertise of an organ builder to design the sounds for that particular acoustic. A chamber organ case is best suited for a domestic room rather than a large interior such as a chapel or a Cathedral. An organ case is a substantial piece of furniture that shields a pipe organ. When designing pipe shades for an organ builder I study the interior from where the pipe organ is to become the main work of art.
Most of my new carvings are influenced by past historical restorations, this background participates greatly in designing carvings in new or contemporain styles.
