“A piece should not only look beautiful and harmonious from across the room — it should also offer more to discover the closer you get to it. Some details can only be felt when running your hands over the piece, and others may be discovered by surprise after living with it for some time. This philosophy impacted my studies greatly and I continue to create with this intent.”
Each Maughan Made piece is sparked by a fresh perspective and quickly transforms into a functional and inspired creation that can also be appreciated for its beauty alone. Trained in a classic, hand-tool focussed style, Jake Maughan creates furniture designed to be passed down and enjoyed for generations.
Born and raised in North Vancouver, BC, and fuelled by a strong desire to create with his hands, Jake studied under renowned craftsman and Krenov protege Robert Van Norman at the Inside Passage School of Fine Woodworking on the Sunshine Coast.
