Smith Galleries is known for fine woodworking and the fine woodworking of Kovecses Designs fits perfectly in the gallery mix. Joe and Karen Kovecses create contemporary ikebana vessels as well as small boxes and bowls. All have a very modern oriental feel. Some of the woods that are used would be termed exotics with bubinga, wenge and zebra being the predominant choices. Curly maple is often used with the clean light wood contrasting beautifully with the darker exotics.
