Rhys studied wood/furniture at the ANU School of Art, completing his honours year in 2011. He has since worked as a cabinetmaker and operated his own designer/maker business, forming a strong partnership with several architecture firms as both designer and consultant for timber-focused projects.
Currently, he is studying a Master of Architecture at Melbourne University as part of a continued investigation of the interrelationship between theory and practice, hand and machine, and society and self.
Rhys has a fascination with timber chairs and woven surfaces, reflected in his practice as a continued exploration of de novo organic forms and weaving techniques.
