Eben Foss
Deer Isle native Eben Foss is a furniture maker, cabinet maker and carpenter, who has returned to the island to make it his permanent home. Foss states that, “From an early age my creativity has often been expressed through trying to create wooden objects to solve challenges, or to make objects that others would appreciate, for function or beauty.” He started out as a carpenter and looking to improve his skills and acquire some of the finer techniques of the trade, he trained at the North Bennett Street School in an intensive program that taught classical methods and design. His current work is a melding of classical and modern materials, designs and techniques, often starting with a clients need to fulfill a functional void, and then working together to develop and create pieces that are both functional and beautiful.
