What do you collect? “I come from a family of collectors; I think my father ended up being a museum curator for the Smithsonian in part because the job paid him to collect. I collect old tools, Eames chairs, and any furniture with multiple drawers, but my favorite collection is an assortment of pattern molds (pictured) — wooden patterns that are used in foundries to sand-cast iron and other metals. I love them for their colors and sculptural shapes.”
