Interview with Peter Clark, Woodworker/Sculptor


Peter A. Clark
Born 1971 Lindsborg, Kansas, USA

Peter’s current creative interests are conceiving, designing, and fabricating smallish projects that have functional as well as peculiar aspects or artistic elements. Until recently, his primary medium has been wood which, together with complementary components and finishes, became mixed-media final pieces. More recent artistic projects are brazed metal animal sculptures. From his early years he was creating and building things on his own with scrap wood and odds and ends. Encouragement and support for this creative outlet was provided by his parents and extended family. He was strongly influenced in this area by his maternal grandfather who was a life-long farmer as well as accomplished tinkerer. Housing a collection started during childhood, his small and efficient workshop is now filled with a ready assortment of tools and equipment along with several types of wood and materials. This creative retreat behind his home in Salina, Kansas, is known as the “Happy Tinkery”.
