In 2005 I visited Sam Maloof to do a new twist on the usual profile article.Instead of asking him to tell his life story yet again, I asked him to give advice to other aspiring designer/makers.He was hesitant because he didn't have formal training and his method was basically to follow his own intuition and keep improving the same pieces as he built them again and again, but the article turned out great anyway.
It ran in FWW #179 as 'Sam Maloof on Design,' and ended up being more about Sam's design life and decisions and less what he would tell others, though he had some great advice, too.The following Q&As were cut from the article for space reasons.
I stumbled onto them this past week, while I was putting together my thoughts on this man who meant so much to me.I enjoyed reading them again, and I hope you do too...
