Jory Brigham is a local furniture designer and fabricator in San Luis Obispo, CA. Jory began woodworking with his father, Tim Brigham, at a very early age. Many skills were passed down to him allowing Jory to hone in on his unique style without compromising the process of a true artist. Learning to build everything by hand, Jory has devised numerous avenues to fabricate one of a kind designs. Although this diversity helps Jory learn and grow as an artist, an aspect of his labor he would never compromise, some basic elements are forever present in each of his creations.
