Some might think that Peter Brown is a bit of a computer geek at his day job, but we think he is a creative genius because of the work he does on the side. His passion is working with wood, metal and other materials to create some truly spectacular pieces. Everything he makes is custom and exquisitely hand-made.
One of the most memorable pieces he has ever created was made from some simple colored pencils you’d find at the dollar store and glue.

Arranged them how he wanted…
