ABOUT

 

Courtney Loving - Artist & Owner

After a 25 years in the culinary arts I decided to put down my knife and pick up a hammer to work with metal. The lure of the torches, tools, colors, textures, and creativity has been a powerful force. This love for metalsmithing eventually evolved into a full-time business that has an organic and whimsical flavor with hints of humor and positive messages that resonate with the soul. My work is completely handcrafted in the studio from raw metal into a finished item of beauty and originality. The copper, brass, and silver take on a variety of patina and color that makes each piece one of a kind.  I strive to bring some new life to a few upcycled components and metals while providing a statement of personal style.
