Peter Young, Peter Young, Qld (Studio Furniture 2018)

Studio furniture making is my third career, having earlier been a research scientist and then CEO of a biotechnology company. The part of science I liked best was the hands-on bench work, having an idea and then pursuing it through to publication. Although the techniques of furniture making are different, the process is remarkably similar. As in science, I am actively seeking to expand my skills and then tailor them to maximum effect in my own style. My current practice involves making pieces for galleries, writing for Australian Wood Review and teaching at the Sturt School for Wood and elsewhere. Email: pydesign@tpg.com.au
