Ray Brien, Ray Brien, Tas (Studio Furniture 2018)

I am a self employed bespoke designer and maker, living and working in a Launceston. I manufacture furniture and small items in Tasmanian timbers on commission and for gallery sales. I completed an associate degree in Furniture Design at UTAS school of fine furniture in 2010 and was entered in the Dean's role for excellence in 2008. My works are based on my interest in late Ming, early Qing dynasty Chinese furniture, Japanese joinery techniques and Art Deco designs.
