Profile of Isabella Pierson

I am a designer and builder working in wood and metal. I intend to thoughtfully create objects that are a pleasure to live with and use. I enjoy the physical work, and relationship to tools and materials, that comes from building by hand. I strive to remove all elements that are not essential and then play with balance, proportion and visual rhythm to achieve beauty. I especially enjoy bringing attention to structural components as unlikely decoration. My hope is to create pieces that are at the same time light and rich, portable and durable.
