MEET KATHERINE

Katherine is the creator of Barkiture, originally started out making speculative and commissioned one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. She holds a B.A. in Applied Design with an Emphasis in Furniture from San Diego State University and a M.F.A. in Furniture/Wood from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She furthered her studies in England focusing on upholstery techniques. She has taught woodworking, furniture design, art and upholstery in college and workshops, as well as woodworking to children. Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally and she also has furniture in several publications. She currently has a piece of studio furniture on display at LAX.

MEET RICHARD FORD

Richard, heavy lifter and overall awesome “shop boy,” holds a B.F.A. in Furniture Design from Swain College of Art (now the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth), a M.F.A. in Furniture Design from San Diego State University and an M.B.A. from Loyola Marymount. Upon graduating from SDSU, Richard became the Head of the furniture program at Oregon College of Art and Craft. Additionally he exhibited at the Leo Kaplan Modern Gallery in New York. His works have been in numerous publications and he has a piece in the permanent collection in the Renwick Gallery, at the Smithsonian Institute.

After spending years building furniture for people, we decided to combine our love of dogs with our love of furniture into designing & building furniture for dogs. Living with three medium to large sized dogs, we had dog beds practically in every room. While we love our dogs, we do not allow them on our furniture, they aren’t always as clean as we would like. Those beds would get picked up when company came over because quite frankly they weren’t the prettiest. So what’s a furniture maker to do but design and build interesting, creative furniture that you would like to have in your house and is specifically for your best friend.
