Hardware  Hardware; This is the design and fabrication of sculptural elements that act as part.
While living in Ruston Louisiana and working on my Master of Fine Arts degree I formed The Woodchuck Carving Company. Primarily to provide lamp parts for Hart and Associates a nationally know creator of Lamps, Chandeliers and Accessories. I created designs and patterns using traditional sculptural methods and produced part using Italian industrial wood carving machines.
By definition a part is an interchangeable hardware item. These parts were wooden but had to meet tolerances and have a hand made look. My wife Patty Scott Mitton and I took this back yard company to a position of supplying interior designers with drapery hardware and furniture. At that point my Masters became one of mastering the crafts and one of less formal education. Then we were discovered and soon were selling custom drapery hardware through The Expo Design Centers division of The Home Depot. We grew very quickly and drew the attention of one of the largest suppliers of drapery hardware, Springs Window Fashions.
Their lines of Bally, Graber and Nanik each had the need of an Industrial Designer.
We sold our product line to them and I became the manager of widow fashion design for Springs Window fashions located in Middleton Wisconsin.
