A Maker of Things

DK Row of The Oregonian profiles MFA in Applied Craft and Design candidate Eric Trine ‘13 and his entrepreneurial ambition to grow his own one-man handcrafted furniture design business.

Trine graces the front page of The Oregonian’s Business Section in an article that traces his motivation to become a “maker of things.” After growing up in California, and then studying at Biola University, Trine decided to focus in studio art. He started working for his father’s business, Champion Power Equipment. Eventualy Trine realized he wanted to sharpen his abilities at craft and design.

Read Row’s article profiling an outstanding student in the MFA in Applied Craft and Design program.

Row writes that Trine “heard about the graduate program offered by PNCA and OCAC and was intrigued. The fact the program was in Portland—long-regarded as a craft epicenter—was also a pull.”

“Now living in Portland, Trine moved his one-man operation here last year to pursue a master’s degree in applied craft and design in a program offered jointly by the Pacific Northwest College of Art and the Oregon College of Art & Craft.”

See more of Trine’s work at this website www.etrine.com, or follow him on Instragram (@etrine). His sculptures were featured in the 2012 PNCA Gala: Transform.
