FUNCTIONAL, INDUSTRIAL ART @mer.espo on Instagram
All my pieces are stick welded, TIG welded and/or forged. I've been studying blacksmithing for the past 11 months and just spent an intensive week at the John C. Campbell school of Folk Art blacksmithing 10 hours a day.
I have a BFA in fine art from LSU and enjoy making functional art. I have earned a Welding Technology certificate at College of DuPage (Thanks again to the MikeRoweWorks foundation for the scholarship!) and hope to have more time now to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
The things I create range from tables, chairs, benches, house numbers, railings, mailboxes, storage units, fire pits... I'm always expanding my repertoire. Every piece is unique and I'm always adding photos of the things I have made.
Check out the photo gallery, if you like something it may be available for sale or I can construct something similar to your size specifications and needs.
I also do repairs and custom industrial fabrications. Text or email me to discuss a project. thanks!
