Furniture Design and Maker

Liverpool, Merseyside


Furniture, Wood, Design


Hugh Miller is an award winning contemporary applied artist specialising in studio furniture in wood.
His work is based on a set of design principles, developed during his Churchill Fellowship in Japan in 2015. Made in English elm and brass, Hugh’s work explores contrast: between texture and smoothness; between hidden and visible; between plane and lath; and between lightness and solidity. These contrasts illuminate the duality of Japanese and Western cultural influences that underpin his work.


Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship to Japan

01 Nov 2015
I recently travelled to Japan on a Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship to research the unique woodworking culture there. I spent 8 weeks meeting craftsmen, academics, architects, engineers and students. My report will be ready in the spring.
