David Rogers

 

Biography

David was born in Saint Louis, Missouri in 1957 but grew up in Lynchburg, Virginia. In 1974 he began his career in furniture design as a furniture maker in Lynchburg, Virginia and for thirty years worked in the woodworking field as a furniture designer/maker, design engineer at a chair manufacturer, project manager at an architectural millwork company and assistant object conservator in a major art museum.

 

He received a BFA in Furniture Design from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1981 and returned to VCU in 1988 for an MFA in Furniture Design. Since 1992 he has taught furniture design at Kutztown University in Kutztown, PA.

 


In 1995 he started developing his life long interest in figurative sculpture and began exploring ways of integrating figurative sculpture into his furniture. By 2004 he set aside furniture design to focus solely on the sculpture. Currently he is working with portraiture and exploring the expressive language of the human face.
