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’s work is a part of the permanent collection in the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, New York and the collections of Bausch & Lomb, Kodak, Saatchi & Saatchi Roland, Diamond Packaging, and University of Rochester to name a few. He is an active member in The Furniture Society and has exhibited in galleries and leading shows across the country.
Scott has won numerous awards including the Veneer Tech Craftsman’s Challenge Award for two of his works, an unprecedented achievement. He also won a prestigious Napkin Sketch Award from the American Institute of Architects sponsored by Architectural Record Magazine, a DuPont Award for Innovative Use of Material, and has been featured on the broadcast series Woodworking in Action and HGTV’s The Furniture Show.
As an artist, sculptor and designer, Grove works directly with interior designers, architects and private collectors. He holds workshops nationally on topics such as design, specialty finishes, veneering, mold making and fiberglass construction. Grove also consults on marketing, workflow efficiencies, and product development for artists and manufacturers.
Scott is a featured instructor at the prestigious Marc Adam’s School of Woodworking in Indiana and will be teaching at Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont and the Chippendale International School of Furniture in Edinburgh, Scotland, among others.
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 (American Airlines First Class Magazine), Woodshop News, Architectural Record, Interior Design, Design New York, The Robb Report and the Los Angeles Times.
A graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in environmental design and a minor in sculpture, Grove also studied at RIT’s School for American Crafts. He maintains a studio in downtown Rochester where he produces commission work and speculative art as well as limited edition pieces.
