For nearly four decades, John Streater has been sculpting the very soul of wood, fashioning it into fine furniture that defines a generation.
A pioneer in the realm of southwestern art, John’s creations serve as a bridge between the world of artistry and skilled craftsmanship. Him and his dear wife Pamela call a tranquil slice of land in Yallingup home, and it’s also the very place of the John Streater Fine Furniture gallery.
Since he began his artistic journey in 1982, John has gained legendary status with iconic creations like the Cone Table and the Parallel Universe table, cementing his reputation as one of Australia’s premier furniture artisans. But John’s gallery is more than a mere showcase of his extraordinary talent; it’s a space that welcomes a diverse array of artists and creators.
From woodturning and glasswork to children’s puzzles, jewellery and pottery, the gallery is a vibrant tapestry of artistic expression. To add another feather (or perhaps a leaf, in John’s signature style) to the gallery, a viewing area into John’s workshop invites visitors to a unique glimpse into the entire woodworking process. For curious folk like us, it’s a real treat.
