Gustav Pedersen is a true artisan. While a designer and builder of fine stand-alone cabinetry and built-in furniture, he is brilliant at translating artistic designs into the reality of finished wood art forms. Fluent in mixing curves and diagonals, he works with opposites and contrasting elements. Gus is not only inspired, but in fact driven by the silky feel of well-sanded wood, or the surprise of splitting a log and seeing an interesting grain pattern. As an artist, he is fluent in mixing curves and diagonals, as well as mixing opposites and contrasting elements. Then comes the time-consuming task of translating artistic designs into the reality of finished wood pieces. Some ideas emerge from his workshop quickly, others take days and even weeks of experimenting and fine-tuning. His interest in working with the most common or exotic woods and combining them result in magnificent pieces that are a delight to both see and feel.
