Ben came to me a few years ago to reproduce a size of oak frame that he had gotten in France for his broadsheets. We used the same moulding for his two blind plate impressions that were part of his archive in this year’s Whitney Biennial. I’m grateful for the honor of making them for him.

Article about Silverman Booth at ARTSY

I was asked to frame some photos for my friend Andrew Paynter. He is part of the Jack Purcell campaign at the new converse store in SF. Many of the photos from this campaign are on his website.




I was asked to design and build fixtures for the new & Pens store in Culver City. Andrew Martin Scott, co-owner of Needles and Pens in San Francisco is embarking on a new venture in culver city. Part bookstore, part art gallery and part small-run publisher, & Pens will be another Art destination in Culver City.


Here are some progress photos from the buildout.



I was asked by Dena Beard, curator at The Lab in SF to create a special portfolio box to house an edition of ten prints by by area artists for their anual fundraiser. I was able to obtain some free redwood cut-offs from Paul Discoe and Joinery structures to make them.

The portfolio contains prints by D-L Alvarez, Tammy Rae Carland, Anthony Discenza, Desiree Holman, Chris Johanson, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, Rubi Neri, Trevor Paglen, and Clare Rojas
