Summary: An interview of David and Michelle Holzapfel conducted 2008 January 6-March 2, by Josephine Shea, for the Archives of American Art's Nanette L. Laitman Documentation Project for Craft and Decorative Arts in America, at the Holzapfels' home and studio, Applewoods Studio and Gallery, in Marlboro, Vermont.
The Holzapfels speak of their studio spaces and how they live and work together; the difficulty of marketing yourself as an artist; their involvement in artistic communities such as Wood Turning Center and Canadian Craft Council; traveling to Croatia to participate as guest artists in an exhibition curated by the United States Information Services; the financial difficulties of being artists; the impact technology has made on their work; the importance of apprenticeships; and their view of time spent with James Prestini. The Holzapfels also recall Michael Hosaluk, Mark Sfirri, Craig Nutt, Peter Galbraith, Denis Fitzgerald, and others.
