Bednarski's work creates a union between repurposed industrial materials such as reclaimed steel and wood. Each piece of furniture is seamlessly crafted by hand to provide the perfect statement piece within the room. Form and function come together and work in unison beautifully in Bednarski's work.

Eduardo: Metal Sculptor

Eduardo transforms gears and other found metal parts into recognizable objects such as motorcycles, guitars, working clocks. Rising up from the grits and grease, these reused metal parts get to see another life.

Dan Duffy: Painter

Duffy's colorful figural paintings break the boundaries of realism and drift into modes of surrealism. His depictions of everyday scenes are described using an emphasis on shape and color, almost becoming abstract in some places. One piece in particular, with it's angular cut out, shifts between painting and sculpture.
