    Biography
    SCOTT GROVE is a third-generation artist. As a self-taught woodworker, he is known for layers of artistic expression and creative vigor; his pieces are a combination of unique carved textures, radiant veneers, and copper polychrome finishes. He creates a desire to touch each piece for a sensuous, pleasurable experience. Sophisticated and elegant with a touch of whimsy, his work raises a sense of wonder and delight.
    Based in the Finger Lakes Region of Western New York, Scott produces commission work, sculpture, speculative furniture, and limited edition pieces for interior designers, architects and private collectors. He consults on a variety of topics including furniture design, composite fabrication, manufacturing production efficiencies, business practices, and sales and marketing.
    Grove lectures and teaches internationally, most notably at the Chippendale International School of Furniture and Marc Adams School of Woodworking. He has been featured in, and has written for, a variety of publications such as Fine Woodworking Magazine, Celebrated Living (American Airlines First Class Magazine), Woodshop News, Architectural Record, Interior Design, Design New York, The Robb Report, Huffington Post, and the Los Angeles Times, as well as HGTV’s The Furniture Show and Woodworking in Action Series. His work is part of the permanent collection in museums and many private collections.
    Grove has won four Veneer Tech Craftsman Challenge Awards, an unprecedented achievement. He has pioneered a number alternative veneering techniques including asymmetrical matching and veneering extreme compound curves. He has also won the NICHE Award for his trompe l’oeil carving, a DuPont Prize for innovative use of materials, AIA / Architectural Record Napkin Sketch Award and an NEA grant for environmental interactive sculpture; to name a few.
    He has also authored a comprehensive veneering book published by Schiffer Publishing: Advanced Veneering and Alternative Techniques, and has a second book forthcoming entitled Hardwood Edging and Inlay for Curved Tables. He working on his third which will be on Creative Thinking and Design.
