David Rogers, Professor
In 1974 David 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 portrait sculpture. David’s work continues to evolve and he is currently exploring his figurative interests in computer generated 3d animation.
