As a Designer Artisan I am dedicated to creating longlasting, functional and aesthetic metalwork for home, garden, and commecial beautification. I have individually handcrafted all the the pieces, each one is unique and custom made.
My aim is to influence contemporary design trends towards incorporating concepts of longevity and symbolic significance to our functional, everyday objects. I think beyond the modern day concept of "design for disassembly" and consider the everyday object as having lasting value, functionality and restorability for many generations to come.
Through my business Smith Art, I will be conducting fun, hands-on, project based classes in artisan tecniques in the Northern Rivers area, NSW, in April 2021.
