Anne Shutan

Anne Shutan creates one-of-a-kind pieces of sculpture and furniture, affirming the sensuous nature of wood. Shutan’s work is sought by collectors around the country who know they are buying treasures that will be around for generations.

Anne enlivens each piece with her extraordinary wit and craftsmanship. After studying the fundamentals of her craft for several years, Shutan opened her own studio in Colorado. In 1985 an interior designer was so taken with her work she introduced Shutan to the Dutch Master Woodworker and Sculptor, Jan DeSwart. There was instant rapport. At the end of their first meeting he said, “Finally, I have found the person that I will share my secrets with”. Shutan moved to Los Angeles and was DeSwart’s protege until his death in 1987.

Shutan lives in Colorado and continues to expand her skills in creating unique works of art in wood that are exhibited in fine galleries and homes around the country.

“For me, warm wood sculptures are a welcome relief from the frantic qualities of today’s world. I invite you to touch them as they touch you.”
