Description: A carved room divider/screen creating a niche in a corner of the master bedroom. The piece illustrates the application of Geolithic (deep, fluid) carving to an architectural feature. The niche serves as a home office and dressing room. It is constructed of eight, separate panels which are assembled seamlessly on site.
On the inside there is a continuous desk/vanity surface which wraps around the inside of the divider and adjoining wall, creating a u-shaped work surface. Under the work surface are 11 drawers and one secret compartment. Four of the drawers are specially outfitted with felt-lined pocket holes and removable trays for jewelry. A mirror is incorporated into the room-divider. Several small shelves and one small opening are also carved into the room divider wall surfaces.
On the outside facing the bed, a carved bench is built into the room divider.
