The Artist and His Work

Erich Fichtner Designer and Maker

Erich’s long and varied career in woodworking has spanned more than thirty years. Having established a reputation in the USA as a premier designer and maker of bespoke furniture for luxury yachts as well as award winning furniture for residential clients, he is now based in the west of Ireland.

Here, where he lives with his wife, the painter Mimi Kern, Erich focuses on smaller pieces, including jewellery boxes, chests and other small pieces, while producing two or three larger pieces each year for exhibition and accepting commissions from clients in Ireland and abroad.
