Jesse Shaw is a renowned wood craftsman and furniture designer. He began his career at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, ME in 2005, where he was awarded a fellowship upon graduating that enabled him to hone his woodworking skills under the tutelage of master craftsmen. He attended design school at the Savannah College of Art and Design and was selected to study with notable furniture designers in Milan, Italy. Soon after, Jesse became the lead furniture designer for Currey & Company in Atlanta, GA. His job was to design 150 pieces a year and manage those designs in 15 factories internationally which exposed him to many fascinating manufacturing processing and techniques. The combination of traditional woodworking and high-tech manufacturing left a powerful impression that he infuses into his designs. The Boston-based master craftsman has taught woodworking classes at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, Eliot School of Fine Art, and Tufts Museum School and made appearances on PBS's TV show Rough Cut Woodworking. His work has been viewed in Museums, Galleries, and Private Collections. Jesse makes small-batch works and designs and builds custom furniture and lighting.
I believe a true craftsman honors the tree by building a piece that will last generations. My goal is to bring to life new creative designs that are built using quality materials, traditional techniques, and a few modern ones to assure every piece lasts a lifetime.
