Peter Pierobon
Artist Statement

My inspirations have largely come from the world of fine art and in particular from indigenous cultures around the world. I am seeking to establish a fresh relationship between the primitive and the sophisticated, traditional and modern, while maintaining respect for the craft tradition. Primarily made of wood, my furniture seeks to satisfy functional needs while challenging precedents of design and concept. In the process, a personal vocabulary has evolved that reflects these criteria and the landscape that I live in.
