Happy Friday, friends! We hope you’re prepping for an amazing weekend. It was so fun to get to write about a local gallery in Kinston, NC for Domino this week. And even more fun to get to work with my good friend and talented photographer Lindsay Corrigan, who took the photos for this shoot! Hope you enjoy!
Burying copper in the ground might seem like an unusual first step for making one-of-a-kind furniture. And a screen-printing shop that specializes in collegiate apparel might not seem like the ideal location for an art gallery. But when Ben Harper and his wife Katherine moved to Kinston, NC with their son and daughter, “conventional” wasn’t necessarily what they were after.
Harper had built a successful screen-printing business but always dreamed of woodworking. “My life just didn’t allow the time for it,” Harper said. “Part of the move to Kinston was a chance for a reset for my career.”
