1984年年末出生，27歲那年因好友去木工坊做了一支木頭的筆，內心便萌發了學木工的念頭，醞釀了一年後開始細木作的學習。喜歡木頭令人安穩的質地與其多變性，後來便在Facebook 成立了質木製作 / ZhìMù Workshop，記錄平常製作木器的心得。質木無文，正呼應了工藝家對於木質器物製作的想法，儘可能呈現最自然的木紋與肌理。喜歡製作木食器、燈具及文具，質木製作是一個起點，未來的方向是開發木材質與其他材質的搭配，製作實用又兼具美感的物件。
ZhìMù Workshop by Patrice Hsu
Patrice Hsu, born in 1984. At 27, a close friend showed him his handmade wood pen, which then kindled his desire to learn woodwork. After one year of brewing, he began to learn woodturning and joinery. He enjoyed crafting woods for its settling quality and it has been a great fun to discover different characteristics in various kinds of woods. Later "ZhìMù Workshop" was established to record the course of his woodworking. ZhìMù in Chinese means "unadorned nature" just as how the artisan chips away a piece of wood and display its unadorned nature. ZhìMù Workshop is the first step and in the future will focus on creating products composed of different materials that are both useful and of aesthetic design.
