Peter Leue

Peter Leue (pronounced Loya) (b. 1946) creates one-of-a kind pieces of fine studio furniture, sculptural furniture and sculptures in wood and mixed media. Peter studied with Wendell Castle and Bill Keyser at the School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology. After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1968, he continued to create many one-of-a-kind pieces of commissioned and sculptural furniture while teaching adolescent delinquent boys for 12 years. 

Peter began full-time woodworking in 1981, and for nearly two decades, specialized in architectural reproduction woodworking, for which he won a Preservation Merit Award from the Historic Albany Foundation in 1984. In 2000, he began the restoration of an 1850's Gothic Revival cottage, which resulted in another Preservation Merit Award in 2004. In 2007, he sold his large shop and designed and built a 900-square-foot studio next to his home. 

Though his work has ranged from architectural woodworking to fine studio furniture and cabinetry to whimsical sculptural pieces, Peter now concentrates on creating sculptural furniture, commissioned studio furniture and interactive works of art. He has designed and built many one-of-a-kind pieces, including a 2011 series of tables titled "Sabotage," based upon their unique sabots or wooden shoes. His most recent series is called Maxiature:  common objects in very uncommon sizes. His website can be found at
