Ennis Nehez visits Groundworks / by Kelly Ennis

Val, Trudy, and Elizabeth took an afternoon to explore the Groundworks studio in a converted bakery and talk with owner / craftsmen / visionaries Brian Foster and Ernie Sesskin. Brian and Ernie make incredible, handcrafted furniture in their Philadelphia shop, which we had the great pleasure of visiting on February 5.

Check out their amazing work on the web at http://groundworkhome.com/ and below for photos of our afternoon at Groundworks.
