"Thank you Burns for having your exceptional and unique custom art furniture in our gallery in the recent exhibition, “The Art of the Landscape” at the Ferry Building Gallery. Your work speaks to the natural landscape of the West-coast and I am in awe of the way in which you juxtapose the various types and shapes of wood and stone to create truly brilliant one-of-a-kind furniture. Our gallery patrons and the visiting public very much admired and appreciated your designs and craftsmanship"
Ruth Payne, Ferry Building Gallery
"We first hired Burns to custom-build a mantle piece for a challenging corner containing a gas fire-place. The results were stylish and functional! When we began looking for a coffee table and an entrance ‘closet’ for our newly renovated home, we were unable to find anything interesting within our price range. Burns was, once again, able to design two gorgeous pieces which are both functional and artistic. It was a pleasure working with an artist who could listen to our wish-list and make it happen at a price that worked for us! I highly recommend Burns and Cornice Furniture if you would like fine furnishings to suit the style of your home."
"“Having seen Burns’ work displayed elsewhere on Bowen Island, we initially contacted him to make a new live edge shelf for the display of a native art etching. We also enquired about possible wall display options for our kitchen, for which he ultimately created a unique burl maple wall plaque. Both works have proven to be stunning in their execution.
Burns demonstrated a professional approach to the projects while possessing a strong creative vision. He was very supportive of incorporating our input and we are pleased to provide our recommendation.”
