Fall Fashion Week MN - Coalesce 1922
My name is Peter Mielech. I'm an Asian American, 3rd generation woodworker and jewelry designer from Saint Paul, MN. I work mostly in found and upcycled wood with resin, creating unique, wearable art.
As a studio art major in college I had an interest in many mediums, ending up focusing on graphic design. I started my graphic design career over 20 years ago working in a variety of agencies and industries, from sports and music, to consumer packaging, footwear, and display design.
The pandemic quickly turned my hobby into a business and now I’ve transitioned the 9-5 grind into a 24/7 passion. I love seeing my work around town in stores and on people. I’m learning and improving every day, and the fluid nature of this arts community keeps me excited and humble.
