I love working with clients using heirloom objects. Taking something that has a lot of memories and incorporating it into a functional piece of furniture creates not only a unique piece, but something that can be passed down through generations.
I have several suppliers I use for old metal and I love taking this old metal and merging it with wood. I really think the two are very complementary.
Here are a few of the recycled art projects I have done using momentos, old steel or old carts/drawers and combining it with woodwork to create something entirely new!
