Artists Inspiration:

John Wiggers is an award winning studio furniture maker. John’s passion for woodworking has been life-long and much of his knowledge has been learned from his father Johan, who was himself trained as a master craftsman in his native country of Holland. In addition to this, John’s furniture making skills have also been honed through many years of collaboration with some of the world’s most renowned furniture designers and makers, including OEM (private label) work for talents such as J. Wade Beam, Dakota Jackson, Vladimir Kagan, Ron Seff, and Lee Weitzman. The spirit of John’s work reflects his deep philosophical commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability. In the late 1980s John became an active early supporter of grass roots initiatives such as W.A.R.P. (Woodworker’s Alliance for Rainforest Protection). Together with Greenpeace, The Sierra Club and World Wildlife Fund, W.A.R.P. later went on to play a key role in the formation of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) in 1993. In 1998 John became one of the first furniture makers in the world to be certified by the Smartwood arm of Rainforest Alliance to the rigorous chain-of-custody standards of the FSC.
