For the last 16 years Andrew Gray has been working with wood. His materials and inspiration come from his lifelong home in the Catskill Mountains. Before he started chiseling, sanding and planing, he studied literature and developed a deep commitment to sustainability. He wants his work to tell the story of our continued relationship with the natural world around us and the value of knowing your landscape intimately. He combines his strong sense of design with a deep understanding of how to get the most out of a piece of wood. In addition to the Footed Plattes available at Blue Gallery, Andrew designs and builds unique and lasting pieces of furniture.
