Furniture by Brent Wright

Born in 1977, raised on a ranch in Eastern Oregon outside of Heppner enabled Brent to be close with nature and have respect for the simple life ranchers/farmers have. He has always loved to create with his hands and build pieces out of recycled materials.  Brent has worked in sawmills, been a ranch-hand, welders helper, cabinet-maker, furniture-maker, and finish carpenter.  He has experienced the mountain life-styles in Whitefish, MT; Sun Valley, ID; and now in Bend, Oregon.  Through all of these experiences he has refined his skills and visions for the art he creates.

Brent incorporates many materials in his art; relief lacquer spray paintings, ceramics, metal, concrete and found objects. Brent’s influences include Asian, Shaker, Krenov, and Western.  Most of his pieces are functional art that is one-of-kind you won’t find anywhere else.  Brent resides here in Bend, works at Northland Furniture Co. as a Production Manager and is represented through Tumalo Art Co.

You can bid on Brent’s piece and more at the 18th Annual Deschutes Children’s Foundation Art and Wine Auction.
