In memory of my late mother, Norma Rose Carlino, I present my “Norma Rose” writing desk, crafted from sensational, heavily figured Curly Cherry with Hard Maple Legs. There are many design elements that make this piece an exceptional exercise in functional art: the gently angled top, tapered from front to back. Subtle top to bottom tapers of the vertical back element. The carefully crafted front, flowing the curly cherry figure across the entire area. And of course, my signature curved legs in contrasting black Hard Maple.
Mom was a phenomenal artist, both with paint and canvass as well as in the kitchen. She would have been over a century old now. I believe her artistic spirit lives on in me and I know she would enthusiastically approve of this design that bears her name. Please feel free to contact me for further details.
