In this moving account, Peter Korn explores the nature and rewards of creative practice. We follow his search for meaning as he moves from childhood to novice carpenter, to self-employment as a designer/maker of fine furniture, and finally as the founder of The Centre for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine. Along the way, Korn asks and discusses what the process of making things reveals about ourselves, drawing on his forty years of hands-on experience to eloquently explore and answer these topics.
