Artist's Statement

Hayward Zwerling designs and builds woodworking creations that (hopefully) engage the viewer physically, emotionally and/or intellectually. Two of his woodworking creations are whimsical, large scale sculptures on the Somerville Community Path (Elly the Elephant and George the Giraffe and Big Poppy) and entice the viewer to activate the moving (ears) parts.  His picture frames challenge the concept that a "frame" is just there to enahnced the contained painting (why can't the frame be the "art" while his furniture creations sometimes incorporate metal, fabric, and/or light.
