A true craftsman, David Hurwitz designs and builds contemporary furniture pieces, one at a time at his studio in central Vermont, using hand carving along with traditional methods of furniture construction and joinery. His work has been exhibited widely in galleries and museums throughout the United States, including the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, the Delaware Art Museum, the Wharton Esherick Museum and the Bennington Museum. His work is in public and private collections throughout the United States, and in private residences in Canada and England. David has been doing woodworking since the age of six, and has been a professional woodworker since 1988. He has a BFA (1992) in woodworking and furniture design from the School for American Craftsmen at Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, New York. David has been a self-employed furniture maker since 1993. David has been the recipient of several awards and honors in Vermont and beyond. He has been featured in books and magazines all over New England, San Diego, Palm Beach, Arizona and more. In 2006, Michael Monroe, former Curator of the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Renwick Gallery had these comments about David's work: "David is a master at handmade furniture featuring sculptural forms that capture the essence of movement and fluidity from a rigid material, wood."
