Kirtan is a woodworker and furniture designer from Altadena in the San
Gabriel Valley. Having lived in California, Japan, and New York, she
finds herself influenced both by the craftsman style of Southern
California, and the minimalist clean lines of Eastern architecture.
She fell in love with woodworking in New York, and was inspired by the
excitement of its creative community. Being largely
self-taught, Kirtan relies on continuous practice and care to achieve
the expertise needed to create beautiful and functional furniture.
"Harmony and balance are the utmost goals in anything I create."
Some day, Kirtan hopes to share her love of woodworking with her daughter.
