Since 1983 Tico Vogt has made custom furniture and cabinetry for private homes, museums, corporate art collections and executive offices. The finished work, a composition of color, form and grain, reflects respect for the tree, the craft, the tools and the owner.
I work to preserve the harvested tree by means of time- honored tools and techniques, showing care for the material which grew slowly over a long time. I explore new forms and re-examine old ones. Some designs are supplied by the client, some are collaborations, and some are original. A piece of furniture improves with use as it develops its own history and patina.
~ Tico Vogt
“Over the last decade, Tico has built or modifed for us: 2 offices, 2 kitchens, 3 bathrooms and 3 wardrobe cabinets. This means he has built for us 29 separate pieces with 64 shelves, 46 drawers, 40 doors, dozens of panels, and scores of legs, sides, backs, frames and whatever else he has needed to make these things work. I would not hestitate whatsoever to include Tico in any future project. Between his skill, his aesthetics, his demeanor and his honorable ethics, he made each phase of the job work well and the end results are as exactly as we wanted. The pieces look beautiful, work great, wear well, and improve our lives.”
