Matt Johnson's Profile

About

Hello! I am an artist from Wakefield, RI. I grew up in an 1850's brick textile mill that my parents turned into a self sustaining live/work "house" that ran on water power, animals and vegetable gardens. This upbringing heavily influenced my future interests in old things and recycling/reclaiming materials to use in furniture. After 10 years of antique restoration, 5 years of building metal furniture and an Industrial Design degree, I have begun building the things I truly love to make: reclaimed art pieces that celebrate the past, while pointing to the future.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me here, or at flatearthrebirth(at)gmail.com.
