Furnishings for the fearless.


Michelle and Katherine found the merging and collaboration of their talents and creativity truly brought a new inspiration to their work which produces a unique story and sensuality in their art. Their work is both whimsical and sophisticated. Their garden art/sculptures are whimsical; their furniture, sculptures and wall art rise to the level of fine art. Their sculptures and functional furniture hold a place of honor in many fine homes and institutions across the country. Their art has won numerous awards and has been highlighted both in magazines and in a TV documentary on welding and in a coffee table book about tables called, aptly, “Tables”.  

Perhaps one of the most interesting things about Michelle and Katherine, is they do all of their own welding and bending – an art form generally thought to be mastered mostly by men. They have been able to combine the strength of the steel with the femininity and spirituality of their own creativity, to build their beautiful and ever-evolving art.
