Toby Muir Wilson

Toby Muir Wilson is one of Tasmania’s most celebrated artists; a master craftsman and designer who has been working in wood for the past 40 years. He first exhibited at Design Tasmania in 1978 and subsequently studied under Robert Ingham and Michael Bates at the John Makepeace School for Craftsmen in Wood ( Parnham College ) in Dorset, England. In addition to advancing his design and making skills, he began to see landscape as inspiration for his work. Upon returning to Australia, he managed Sturt Wood in Mittagong, NSW, and from there moved to Tasmania to establish his own workshop. The strength of his work is in the integration of narrative-based design and hand skills, exploring the relationship between people and visual landscape, expertly juxtaposing colour with Tasmanian native timbers.
