Art in Progress: Sam Maloof (2004)

Episode 9
Only available in United States

Right from the beginning, we find 88-year-old Sam Maloof in his workshop making wooden masterpieces. To call them furniture would be a disservice to the artists and the craftsmanship that is put into each piece.

Join Sam in his workshop, with his two assistants, as they guide you through the step-by-step process of creating his world famous rocking chair. Love is an ample part of Sam’s life, and he plans to continue doing exactly what he loves to do.

He helped found the studio furniture movement in America. Fifty years later his functional art still defines the highest standards.
