Peg Woodworking is a Brooklyn based company created in 2014 by designer and woodworker Kate Casey. With an intense material curiosity born out of several years as a sculptor and fabricator each design is approached with the utmost attention to form and function. Paying tribute to the clean lines and intricate weaving found in Shaker and Scandinavian design Peg Woodworking provides a contemporary take on the traditional.
While gathering pattern inspiration from Peruvian and American Indian weaving, each piece is hand woven in-house with a unique array of patterns and colors. Through combining the intricate aesthetics of the hand weaving with the angular geometry and clean lines of the woodworking each piece finds a harmonious balance of bold and delicate details.
Kate Casey was born and raised in the Berkshires MA. She moved to Brooklyn NY in 2009 after completing her undergraduate education at Massachusetts College of Art and Design (BFA) and the Yale Norfolk School of Art. Working as a sculptor for several years provided Kate with a thorough understanding of a wide variety of materials as well as a passion for well designed objects with formal and structural harmony. After several years as a fabricator for sculptor Matthew Day Jackson she underwent the Center for Furniture Craftsmanships intensive program to hone in more specifically on woodworking and design.
