Law Sedory 

 

Inspired since childhood by his grandfather Jean Otis Reinecke, a groundbreaking industrial designer, Law studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. He is a graduate of both fine and graphic arts and is heavily influenced by the Art Nouveau, Prairie Style, and the Arts and Crafts movements. He enjoys the study of architecture and lists Greene & Greene as one of his architectural inspirations. Law dreams of one day building his own Craftsman style home from top to bottom, and with the skills and knowledge hes acquiring on his artisan journey, hes well on his way to making that dream someday a reality.

He began working with glass in 1997 as an apprentice at Morava Studios, where one of his first jobs was to restore and reproduce windows for the famous Frank Lloyd Wright's Heurtley House in Oak Park, Illinois. He gained further experience working for another well- established glass studio over the next two years before starting his own business. Soon after he was commissioned to restore several windows in another Wright home, the Walter Gale house, also in Oak Park, and even built windows for the house that were in the original blueprints but never produced.

Law went on to expand his artistic knowledge and skills in glasswork, experimenting with fusing and slumping to make dishware, and also began dabbling in the ancient art of blacksmithing. In 2011 he added a pottery wheel to the workshop, incorporating ceramics into his growing expertise. He is a master of woodwork and enjoys remodeling projects of any size, and his sense of style is infused in all he creates. He uses traditional illustration techniques, including watercolour, acrylics, pencil, pen and ink, screen printing, and several other mediums, and has designed and produced wine labels for a private wine maker. He has many illustration ideas for beer label designs and plans to devote time in the near future to explore them.

Laws dedication to environmentally-friendly materials is a priority. His commitment to conserving our natural resources is practiced in the studio through disciplined recycling and his great love of nature is a theme easily recognized throughout his creations.
