Forged Stee Furniture
By Luke Proctor, USA

 

Working in steel, Luke Proctor's delights in conspicuously emphasizing forged joinery. All connecting points are intentionally exposed to draw attention to the drama of metal being forcefully pushed through metal. Inspired by Shaker woodwork, Luke seeks to bring the same honesty and purity to metalwork by focusing on simple forms and visible non-mechanical connections. His gracefully tapered beams and shimmering mottled surfaces evoke an unlikely lightness through form and texture achieved from metal striking metal.
