At Cherry Arbor Design, we create pieces that integrate math and art. We focus on the experience of the viewer, drawing them in to actively engage, create, and think about the mathematical ideas underlying our work. We combine our career experiences in math, computer science, teaching, and statistics with the study of art and design of interactive forms.

In our Ann Arbor workshop, we explore our ideas, develop prototypes, and create finished work using an array of materials, including wood, felt, paper, acrylic, Tyvek, and paint. Math and art can be social activities, and we develop those ideas that inspire conversation and the potential for collaboration.

We participate with the American Craft Council, a wonderful supporter of craft artists and the largest nonprofit producer of craft shows in the country. In addition to its shows, ACC works to connect creative communities through craft-focused programming and its award-winning magazine, while providing educational resources through its craft library and archives. We are now on the Amazon Handmade pop-up shop, curated by the American Craft Council.
