Scott Grove – Gilding and Patinas

Scott will be discussing how to add gilding to woodworking projects and how to create patinas to add dramatic colors and textures to surfaces.  As a third-generation artist, Scott Grove designs and creates furniture, sculpture, architectural reproductions, photography, murals, play spaces, interiors, films, and other art using multiple media and many disciplines.

For over thirty years he has developed unconventional methods in his approach; Grove’s large variety of work is known for layers of artistic expression. His pieces are often a combination of uniquely carved textures, radiant veneers and finishes, and found objects. His work creates a desire to touch each piece for a sensuous, pleasurable experience. Sophisticated and elegant with a touch of whimsy, his art raises a sense of wonder and delight. Grove has also authored a number of books including his most recent, Advanced Veneering and Alternative Techniques, for Schiffer Publishing, which highlights some of his pioneered veneering techniques. He writes for a variety of national publications and his work has been featured in magazines such as Fine Woodworking Magazine, Celebrated Living, Woodshop News, Architectural Record, Interior Design, Design New York, The Robb Report and the Los Angeles Times.
