Christina Boy Penland Benefit Auction Piece

This stunning bench was donated to the 2022 Penland Benefit Auction by our dear friend Christina Boy.

Christina is known for her thoughtful furniture pieces, designed and handmade from domestic, locally sourced, and salvaged woods. For each piece, close attention is paid to every detail, using both traditional and modern techniques to craft work that is designed to last for generations.

This bench, made from bleached oak and striking orange cording, was completed at Penland during Christina’s Spring 2022 wood concentration workshop. The beautiful danish cord weaving was created in collaboration with the class.

A great friend of Penland, Christina has been a work-study student, a core fellow, and an instructor. 

This work will be available in the online silent auctions. There is still time to register to bid! The preview will go live this Sunday, August 21st, featuring over 100 unique works. Bidding will begin on August 28th.

Penland’s most important fundraising event of the year, the Penland Benefit Auction is a true celebration of community and contemporary craft. We hope you will join us!
