Anne Shutan creates one-of-a-kind sculptures and furniture, affirming the sensuous nature of wood. Shutan’s work is sought by collectors around the country who know they are buying treasures that will be around for generations.
Anne enlivens each piece with her extraordinary wit and craftsmanship. After studying the fundamentals of her craft for several years, Shutan opened her own studio in Colorado. In 1985 an interior designer was so taken with her work she introduced Shutan to the Dutch Master Woodworker and Sculptor, Jan DeSwart. There was instant rapport. At the end of their first meeting he said, “Finally, I have found the person that I will share my secrets with”.
Shutan currently lives in Colorado continuing to create unique works of art in wood that are exhibited in fine galleries and homes around the country.
“For me, warm wood sculptures are a welcome relief from the frantic qualities of today’s world. I invite you to touch them as they touch you.”
