Calm Waters
Title: Calm WatersWoven and Patinaed Copper Mirror  
Our work is about color, light, and you. Mirrors have been virtually ignored as a medium for artists. Yet for us, it is perfect.
Trained as a photographer and a psychologist, respectively, we have been taught to observe people and to understand and capture their moods, experiences and circumstances.
For many years, we have reflected back to the observed, what we have seen and interpreted.  People have always been vital to our work. Moreover, we like people. And we like them raw, exactly as they are - unfiltered, untouched.  People just like you. To celebrate you, your individual qualities and moods, we have put you at the heart of our work--literally.
Look directly at it; no better portrait could ever be done. Still, the mirror is an important part of the composition. Viewing the piece from different angles produces an entirely new arrangement, as other colors and shapes are captured. It is ever fluid. No different than mobiles, except that we are not dependent upon the wind; you need only turn your head to change everything.  Our work is more than a mirror simply encased in a frame. Color and light are equally important elements of our work.
 Light is energy. Mirrors reflect that energy into all aspects of a room, enhancing everything and everyone. Precisely for this reason, mirrors are referred to as the aspirin of feng shui. Color, a facet of light, has the extraordinary ability to affect your moods, your actions and how you respond to people, things and ideas.
Copper is the material we use to make this happen. Often, we weave it, to provide texture and contrast. Always, we meticulously treat it with heat and chemicals to produce pieces that are stunningly colorful. All the same, color preferences are highly personal and may be related to subconscious or spiritual needs and wants. Given that it is made for you, pieces may be commissioned in highly individualized color schemes ranging from bold and dynamic to warm and subdued. Size and budget issues are also readily accommodated. For you are at the heart of our work.

Jeff Kosberg

Wood and stone


Jeffery Kosberg, a resident of Santa Fe, alternates between creating folk art and contemporary sculpture.

The polychrome folk works are carved in solid pine. 
They are playful representations of iconic American images, primarily based on visions of the American west. 
Each work combines familiar visual components into a story of the subject idiom.

The contemporary works combine precisely carved and polished maple with spherical river rock.
Each sculpture seeks to create a visual and textural balance between the contrasting components.
These works are intended to provide a tactile experience in addition to the visual.

Monkey Elders

Title: Monkey Elders

William Allen
I was raised in South Bend, Indiana and studied biology in college. What began as a night class in welding twenty years ago has become a lifelong passion.
Having a particular fondness for nature, animals have been the focus of my art, although I'm also beginning to work with the human figure.
My creations are as varied as the animal kingdom itself.
My sculptures are welded steel constructions.
I begin by forming an intricate wire structure reminiscent of a three-dimensional line drawing.
Attaching sheet steel of various shapes and textures to this surface, I develop a "skin" over the wire form. I expose and enhance surface texture and much of the interior space by keeping the structure open to the play of light.
This process, apparent in each piece, makes my sculptures inherently more appealing. 
As the light changes, new forms and textures emerge, creating a constantly fresh, new piece.
The sculptures are galvanized and copper coated for outdoor durability and patina.
I’ve been commissioned to create life-sized sculptures for the Brookfield Zoo, Detroit Zoo, Field Museum of Natural History and Busch Gardens.
My work is included in private collections throughout the United States.
My work was also part of a recent show at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum.
I’ve won numerous awards for my sculpture, including twice receiving the Michigan Creative Artists Grant.
Since an artist needs constant training and stimulation, I also study regularly at the Art Students League in New York.

Impromptu I

Title: Impromptu I

    Clarke Blair
Clarke Blair's mobiles continue in the tradition of Alexander Calder, as geometric abstractions suspended in space. 
The precision work involved in perfectly balancing the mobile allows the piece to gently move with the ambient air currents, creating an ever changing composition in space.
All of  Blair's works have a powder coat finish which fuses rich color directly to the metal, creating perfectly smooth surfaces and making them impervious to rust or corrosion, which makes them ideal for either indoor or outdoor installation.
