John eric byers

John Eric Byers is a artist, designer, and craftsman who painstakingly hand-tools wood to create geometrically inspired pieces that are minimal, emotional and modernly refined. A former student of Wendell Castle, John's work is guided by a purity in form, surface texture, repetition, and respect for use of materials.

Heralded as a leading American artist working in wood, permanent collections include The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) and The Smithsonian American Art Museum. Numerous awards include The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award, The New York Foundation of The Arts Awards and inclusion in The Smithsonian's Archives of American Arts.
