Joseph Jude Brien is a talented artisan with over thirty years of experience designing and creating furniture, cabinets and sculpture. He studied metalworking and woodworking in secondary school, completed a three-year apprenticeship hand-crafting Shaker furniture reproductions and earned a BFA in Industrial Design from the Rhode island School of Design. He founded Made on Earth Studio in 1989, the design/fabrication division, and Lost Art Workshops, the education division, shortly thereafter. Mr. Brien is equally skilled at creating an heirloom-quality piece of furniture for you, or in patiently and expertly teaching you how to build it yourself.
