Peter Dore, Artist

My practice sits on an array of influencers including printmakers, painters, furniture craftsmen, and industrial design concepts and materials. I look to Ellsworth Kelly’s shapes, George Nakashima’s philosophy, Richard Tuttle’s whimsy and confidence, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s rhetoric, and a mentor, Dana Byrd’s thoughtfulness for direct infusion when in need of inspiration. With the use of new and traditional processes I design and build modern, artistic furniture that will stand the test of time.
