Rhodes Hinman

About the Artist

Rhodes is a designer and maker who offers a line of made-to-order furniture pieces as well as custom woodworking and design services. He focuses on the details of a project - be it small painted accents, or the carved texture on the underside of an armrest - as a way to bring little moments of joy into our daily interaction with often overlooked objects. He collaborates frequently with designers, architects, and custom home builders in Austin, as well as working with private clients to help bring their vision to life. His goal is to make beautiful things that serve their function for years to come with intention and elegance. Rhodes was born and raised in Austin, studied furniture design and woodworking in Olympia, Washington, and in the fall of 2018 returned home to Austin and started his furniture studio, Rhodes Hinman Craft + Design. His studio is a part of the Splinter Group - an artist and maker collective on E. Cesar Chavez St.

Artist Statement

I make furniture that is simple in form, but complex in detail. The details act as the punctuation for the linear compositions.They supply a sense of identity that reflects my own, that of the potential interactor, and the environment in which the work exists. The slight curve in the leg of a chair, or the selective use of accent colors in a cabinet; these small and unassuming interactions can have lasting effects that are best appreciated when encountered over and over again over days, years, and decades, evolving and changing as we do. An object, chair or otherwise, should not be given meaning based on status, money, or trends. It should create it’s own meaning and value. Most objects take on this role, whether we realize it or not. They develop their own story over time that interacts with and influences our own. When objects are stripped of all meaning and history they fade away and crumble in our memories, the same as any person would do in a similar situation. This is not about tradition, as much as identity. Not so much a cultural identity, as a personal identity. A personal identity that is shared rather than hoarded. A personal identity that is too large to ever be owned or possessed by a single person. It’s too big for any one room, but somehow it can be consolidated and compressed into the subtle lines of a chair, and then translated through tactile language through the fingers of a the person who sits, experiencing the conversation not only of those they are presently with, but also with the memories the chair carried into that moment.
