Extra-large Entangled Wall Sculpture

Kyle has been working on a series of works created from flattened, folded metal pipe for a couple of years now. Check out the story of how they have evolved from fairly small bowls to extra-large wall sculptures!

Forged bowls PH2013.jpg

This is the first batch of folded bowls Kyle ever created. They're made from reclaimed metal pipe from demolished warehouses in the historic Shockoe Bottom area of Richmond. He originally imagined the smaller size as catch-alls for keys, wallets, and anything you need as you head out the door. The larger size would be great to hold remotes, or better yet, on their own as a sculptural item on your mantle or coffee table.

As it turned out, the larger size quickly became the more popular size. Kyle created larger and larger bowls, some so big they required multiple heats in our small gas forge. He also experimented with his first wall pieces, the original Entangled series of three wall sculptures, each about 12" x 18".

Entangled 4 wall sculpture PH2016

Last spring, for our group show, GROWTH, Kyle created a new wall sculpture, the biggest to date. Entangled #4 measures 12" x 36".

This winter Kyle was commissioned to created a large 36" x 36" version of his original wall sculpture. Here he is working on the piece in the studio (above), with the finished piece below.

Beautiful Earth Mosaic Trivets

Over the last year, Johannah has created a small series of trivets that double as kitchen artwork. The mosaics are set in reclaimed wood frames made by Kyle. The frames have a small keyhole hanger in the back, so you can easily move the trivets from the table to the wall and back again! The colors and design of these pieces are inspired by landscapes from the beautiful world around us: ocean, forest, and desert.

The photos above show the mosaics in process in the studio. The blue piece is inspired by waves breaking on a sandy beach. The green trivet explores the idea that even nature viewed through a window can help reduce stress. Desert mountains inspired the brown and orange piece.

Below are finished photos of these mosaics. You can find them in our main Etsy shop, or better yet, come see them (and us!) in person at Spring Bada-bing, just a few weeks away on Saturday, April 29th at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery.
