Erik van Miltenburg
April 27 – May 18, 2018
Erik, as a furniture design/maker, began the work by apprenticing with a European master cabinetmaker, and continues to be influenced by the Dutch design movement “de Stijl”. He was born in den Haag, Holland, and grew up in a multilingual household in about 18 locations in Quebec and Ontario, Canada. His furniture work is in daily use in Ireland, Greece, the United States, and Canada. All the craft “Playroom” pieces are made from diverted landfill, with the exception of necessary adhesives and the occasional use of hardboard or other backing materials. These ’Sunday afternoon’ diversions are generally themed by current issues which bug the maker, and the donations can perhaps reflect possible solution-providing organizations.
