Description Unique, New Hope-style studio craft storage piece in solid walnut by the New York artist, William Perry, who additionally served as a professor of woodworking. Very unusual piece featuring a swiveling storage 'cube' divided into two sections by a fixed shelf. The base resembles a stool, with a circular platform and pyramidal form, with two small tiers / shelves for additional storage. Beautiful box joint detail throughout and vivid walnut grain. This is an early work of Perry (circa 1960s) and there are minor, execution flaws (namely, spots of separation to the wood along with minor, age-appropriate wear). There are a couple of light surface scuffs to the top, as pictured. Overall, an exceptionally unique piece in very nice, vintage condition from a lesser-known, but clearly masterful artist. Materials, style, and form are reminiscent of the designs of the New Hope School (Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima).
