Byrdcliffe will be holding an ARTIST SPOTLIGHT for woodworker Peter Kaj Brown of PKB Woodworking on Saturday, May 25, noon to 6:00 pm at the Byrdcliffe Shop on 36 Tinker Street in Woodstock, NY. The Artist Spotlight will focus on Peter’s work, and everybody will be able to meet him at the Byrdcliffe Shop and find out more about the skills and fine artistry involved in his beautifully creative and functional wooden items.
To Peter Kaj Brown, each tree writes its own story. Its grains and knots speak a history that is measured in decades and generations, telling of times and events that are only now dim memories and half-remembered fables. With each item he creates, care is taken to reveal the grains of the wood, allowing their stories to show through. Peter feels that when he makes something, his goal is always to bring out that beauty. He takes great pleasure and enjoyment in revealing the many and varied stories told in the different woods.
