American designer artist Christopher Kurtz’s making-process is driven by the use of a carefully chosen palette of tools, and is centred around an intuitive and conceptual engagement with each piece. The artist has gained international attention with his sculpture and studio furniture and is included in significant private collections.
Kurtz was shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize 2018 with a signature wooden sculptural work. He received the prestigious Louis Comfort Tiffany Award in 2005, and in 2007 he received a New York Foundation For the Arts (NYFA) Award (Lily Auchincloss fellow). He has exhibited as part of ‘Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design’ at the Museum of Arts and Design, USA.
