Both master craftsman and master at challenging the dividing lines of furniture, design and art, Andy Buck is an influential figure in the American Studio Furniture Movement. Inspired by a love for American folk art and the indigenous art forms of Africa and Australia, Buck relies on an intuitive design process that breaks from traditional furniture archetypes, leading to new discoveries in the form and composition of his work. “Thinking with his hands,” Buck creates objects that combine fluid sculptural form with colorful, playful finishing techniques.
