Unique Collaborations in Metal, Mosaic, & Wood
Kyle and Johannah bring the ancient arts of blacksmithing and mosaics to a contemporary audience. Using handtools and early industrial equipment, we create modern designs with the timeless feel of handmade work. We use reclaimed, local, durable, and non-toxic materials to create work that is environmentally sustainable. We place a strong emphasis on community outreach and collaboration.
As a couple, we first met working as custom picture framers. There we learned the art of listening to clients' stories about their new artwork, travel souvenirs, or family heirlooms. Today we still love to hear our clients' stories, their dreams and visions. We see each custom project as a unique collaboration with our clients. To bring just one small part of their vision to life in a piece of artwork that represents their personality is an honor and a joy.
Johannah is a self-taught mosaic artist with a BA in art history. Kyle is a traditionally-trained blacksmith with a BFA in furniture design. Though we happily work independently, our favorite projects bring it all together: metal, mosaic, & wood.
Together, we are raising our two young children, along with one young pup and one old cat, in beautiful, historic Richmond, VA. When we aren't creating in the studios, we're most likely exploring the James River or digging in our backyard vegetable garden.
