"So it is that God tugs at a pilgrim's sleeve telling him to remember that he is only human. He must be his own man, remain in exile, and belong to himself. He must pay attention to his own feelings and to the meaning of what he does, if he is to be for himself, and yet for others as well."
-Sheldon B. Kopp
Exile Woodworking was founded in 2009 with the goal of erasing the lines between art and modern living. As artisanal craftsmanship continues to be driven into the fringe by mass production, Joshua Dukeman is reintroducing nature into our artificial environments with handcrafted functional art. Joshua pulls from a network of artists, designers and contractors to help collaborate with clients to best meet their design/build needs in any space.
