One of the US’s most highly regarded furniture makers Peter Korn explores the nature and practice of creative work. He argues that the challenge of bringing something new into the world, whether in the arts, in the kitchen, or craft, is what generates the fulfilment and meaning in life for which many of us yearn.  He sets out to explain what the act of creation tells us about ourselves and how creative work informs society.

Korn is founder and executive director of the Centre for Furniture Craftmanship in Rockport, Maine. He has been a furniture designer since 1974 and many of his works have been exhibited nationally in US galleries and museums.
