Arnold Geissbuhler was born in 1897 in the medieval town of Delémont, Switzerland, the third of seven children. His desire to become a sculptor originated when, as a child, he watched masonry artisans recarving the detail on weathered stone fountains. In the 1940s, he began designs for the house and studio he himself built overlooking Scargo Lake (Dennis) on Cape Cod. And in a Bauhaus-like synthesis of architecture and art, he designed and executed many of the furnishings: rugs, tables, lamps, candelabra, and utensils.
