RunsWithScissors Designs is the artistic outpouring of Peter Van der Grient’s magpie nature. He works and lives in east Vancouver, and enjoys the process of bringing a piece to life. Each item he creates has its own character and life to it that he brilliantly, and patiently, cultivates. He’s an alchemist of sorts.
Peter is a wondrous tinkerer and expert finder of cool things. He has a wonderful ability to take junk and turn it into something beautiful. He makes furniture and lamps, usually with an industrial or steampunk vibe using reclaimed wood, repurposed items and whatever else he gets his hands on. His studio, where he lives and works, is as eclectic and engaging as he is.
