Joining historic Americans like Thoreau and Carver, leading African American and one of the greatest industrial designers of the 20th century, Charles ‘Chuck’ Harrison took much of his inspiration from nature for both fine art and function objects. His love of nature and natural forms is one of the pillars of his notion of ‘Honest Design.”
