Katie and Joseph Thompson were a pleasure to interview and write about for our September issue. Katie and I connected via Twitter, conversed back and forth, and after checking out Joseph Thompson Woodworks’ website, I decided that they would make a fabulous story for the magazine. Katie and Joseph are talented furniture designers in South Carolina who are using old-school woodworking techniques to create furniture with a modern flair.
I want to feature more people like Katie and Joseph in Breathe. People, artisans in particular, who are creating the new South. Artists, furniture makers, musicians, business women … people who are creating a new cultural landscape in our region.
