It has been said that pride is a sin, unless you are a craftsman; and Howard takes great pride in the original and elegant custom furniture he has created for over thirty years. His line of billiards tables stands at the center of his work - as they would in any well-appointed room - and are complemented by accomplished turns at lighting, seating, cabinets and accents. His craft is a continuation of the American Studio Furniture Movement: singular, custom-made and high-end pieces produced > MORE in small studios beginning in the 1940s. Howard also draws inspiration from the beautiful, futuristic forms Art Deco craftsmen stylized from simple geometric shapes, and from the organic abstractions of 20 th century sculpture. The Hatch Studio line refines and riffs upon these influences, while the unique design for each custom pool table takes shape in the rich currents that run between a client’s commission and an artist’s vision. Hatch Studio billiard tables are bold and contemporary, engineered as much as designed, statement pieces for lovers of art and the modern aesthetic. Howard’s workshop employs traditional techniques and embraces today’s technology. Visitors to Hatch Studio’s idyllic 19 th century mill location on the Androscoggin River in Brunswick, Maine, are as likely to find Howard hand cutting Mother of Pearl inlay with a jeweler’s saw as tracing off intricate blueprints for the laser. The raw materials—choice hardwoods, slates, fabrics and inlays - are meticulously sourced and exquisitely crafted to showcase their best traits. Clients may choose their billiards table from the signature Hatch Studio line, or bring a wish list for a custom piece.
