How does a sculptor respond to the perfection of Thomas Chippendale? Tim Maloney says “Attack.” As a descendent of Paul C. Frisz, the only non-player to be inducted into the baseball hall of fame, he projects the family history by being the only non-furniture maker to get the Colonial Williamsburg Museum and Monticello Museum to represent his art. Said Wallace Gusler, Curator of Furniture at Colonial Williamsburg, “Tim Maloney’s laminated arm chairs would have impressed Thomas Chippendale, who could only afford crossed grain construction at strategic joints called pegged mortise and tenon. Tim also eliminated the pegs.”
Tim Maloney was an MFA Fellow and student of Marc Chagal at the University of Notre Dame. Collectors of his work include Randolph Hearst. His architecture clientele in Winchester, Hume, Round Hill, Upperville, Middleburg, Mount Vernon, Washington, DC and Richmond gave him free range for solar energy research with the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Princeton. His solar art has been supported by the MIT Center for Advanced Visual Studies, The Royal Academy of Art, and NASA.
