About Peter Judge Woodworker

Experience & Creativity

I've been working in wood since I was 7 years old, building love & whimsy into every piece.  Sculpted legs that seem to walk, crafted hardwood bodies, whimsical sweeps of contrasting species and rich colors of patinated copper. My pieces are sculptural, functional art; meant to be used, integrating art into everyday life, following the premise of the Arts & Crafts movement of the past century but with a contemporary aesthetic.  

Process

 I work with domestic and exotic hardwoods complimenting them with patinated copper, brass & bronze.  I “paint with patina”, integrating those "paintings" into furniture, boxes, frames and architectural woodwork. 

Finishes

The patinated metals are coated with 10 coats of clear polyurethane for longevity and functionality - resistant to water stains and normal wear & tear.  The woods are finished in 5 coats of hand rubbed Tung oil for an extremely smooth and durable finish.
