Functional and Sculptural Steel Fabrications
Some of this fabrication work is a direct response to a client need (i.e. stairs, railings, etc). Others are projects I embark upon out of pure curiosity (fiberglass lamp shades) or a personal need (living room furniture).*
*In my own work, I attempt to use found/ salvaged/ re-purposed objects wherever possible. I find joy in the gradual process of collecting items that may inspire an eventual piece. Gathering leaves on walks, plundering piles of abandoned belongings during bulk pick-up, casting a careful eye on construction site trash heaps, and last but not least, perusing my own scrap pile. These collections become the palette I draw from.
**When pieces herein are composite constructions, all non-steel materials are noted in the "media" section.
***All work shown herein is designed and made by Ann Armstrong, unless otherwise noted. The work NOT designed and made by Ann independently, is listed as such here, in the right hand sidebar.
