Geoffrey Fitzwilliam began his woodworking career as a
philosophy student at Rutgers University. In 1974 he moved to Salt Lake City to
attend the internationally acclaimed Violin-Making School of America. Although
he still builds the occasional violin, his real passion lies with the study of
furniture design and construction. And while his craft remains grounded in the
time-honored tradition of the luthier and his personal style is firmly rooted
in the Arts and Crafts movement, he has also worked for well-known avant garde
furniture-makers Wendell Castle and Michael Fortune.
