From Inspiration to Sketch to Finished Piece: A Firsthand Look at the Jeffrey Greene Design Process

In this first part of our series, we’re going to look into the process by which Jeffrey Greene not only conceives his ideas for his truly one-of-a-kind art pieces, but also how he is able to execute them beautifully and accurately, from sketches through all the stages of production and fabrication, to a finished piece of timeless art. All through the help of his finely tuned drawing skills, combined with his unmatched attention to and eye for detail, Jeffrey has established himself as one of the foremost artists creating unique live edge dining tables and other designs. Let’s get a firsthand glimpse of the initial stages of his process. 

The Importance of Drawings

One of the most distinguishing characteristics of Jeffrey’s work is its basis in his use of artistic drawings. The artist uses these freehand drawings to inspire ideas, visualize the spacing and flow of the piece, and help bring his concepts to life. In fact, Jeffrey Greene has filled over 100 books of exploratory drawings, each one filled with countless design ideas that have been turned into truly memorable and gorgeous pieces. Let’s take a look at some of his initial drawings that were destined to later be turned into Jeffrey Greene Design Studio works of art.

The Ideas

Making a preliminary drawing is critical to creating a finished piece of artwork, although many artists do not capitalize on this part of the process. For instance, there can be countless logistical details that need to be taken into account before actually producing or fabricating a piece. With art as unique as Jeffrey Greene’s, it requires expertly-drawn technical renderings of his ideas to most effectively execute his one-of-a-kind designs. For instance, let’s see some of those drawings after he transformed them into genuine works of art.

The Finished Products

Clearly, Jeffrey Greene’s eye for design, mixed with his technical ability, make him one of the most renowned and sought-after artists who work with live edge wood around the entire globe. Many of his drawings and final pieces are available in his online gallery.
