Rob Hare Isa's desk And ChairRob Hare Furniture Maker creates individually designed and hand built furniture with creative vision and bold design in Ulster Park, NY.

Trained as an artist and sculptor, Rob Hare didn’t stop to think whether he could be as deft with a chisel as he was with a cutting torch. He moves around his studio as if it were a single universe. “It never occurred to me that I couldn’t do both,” he says.

It was a natural leap to combine the elements of wood and metal and begin creating practical sculpture – art with a function – pieces of furniture, and other “things” that will stand the test of time and be used and admired for years to come.
