Zachary Zippel Schnitzer
As a child, Zach always found the exact science of building projects as therapeutic. He discovered that he excelled at spacial awareness and color recognition. Starting in civil engineering, Zach soon discovered the field to lack a creative outlet. Transitioning to Sculpture, Zach graduated with a degree in Studio Art, with minors in Architectural and Engineering Design, at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. Through his studies, Zach soon realized that he had a vision and passion for high-end furniture. Upon graduating, he apprenticed at the custom furniture company, Fine Arts Furniture Inc. in New York City for two years. He then further refined his furniture crafting expertise, graduating from the Chippendale International School of Furniture in Scotland. Zach's work has had Exhibitions in Edinburgh, Scotland and London, England, including a display in Scottish Parliament.
