Frankel completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Monash University in 2006 with a major in silver-smithing and jewellery. While pursuing this, he became interested in working with timber and went on to complete a Certificate II in Furniture Making.
Currently based in Melbourne, he has worked both independently and for several other makers locally.
“This furniture series began with an open exploration of form and material. Through a process of play and experimentation, my aim was to develop new ideas without a commercial imperative, and to let my intuition guide me to create a collection both sculptural and functional.”
