Text Entries: While few other tinsmiths of the Revival period (Eddie Delgado and Pedro Quintana) were familiar with the tinwork designs of the 19th century, Woodman was also aware of contemporary design trends in vogue at the time. His wonderful take of on a Deco thunderbird was in keeping with the "Pueblo Deco" designs popular in the Southwest. (i.e. The Kimo Theater in Albuquerque). In fact, Woodman was for many years noted architect John Gaw Meem's tinsmith creating numerous chandeliers and light fixtures for homes and public buildings designed by Meem. Trained as an engineer at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, he was the most exacting tinsmith in his crafting of objects and was capable of creating very large scale lighting fixtures for churches, libraries and courthouses. Arriving in Santa Fe in teh 1930s he was active from the mid-30s until about 1970. In later years, he rarely sold work and often created only parts using templates.
