|Check this out! Functional and reclaimed!|
Erik Hendrickson has been an apprentice at the Trenton Atelier under the direction of former Johnson Atelier artist Peter Abrams since 2010. He finds the wire rope material a challenge and calling to work with; he studied Civil Engineering at The College of New Jersey prior to uncovering his inner artist. A sense of industrial architecture pervades his engineer-inspired creations, composed of predominantly found objects and materials.
According to Erik, "Each FireBowl by Modern Metal Work® is truly a functional work of art. Unlike mass produced products from volume manufacturers, our FireBowls are individually hand-crafted by skilled artisans at our Trenton Atelier, located in the heart of Trenton, New Jersey, USA. Our FireBowls are unique, lasting and eco-conscious. If you are concerned about the conservation of our planet’s limited resources, you will be pleased to know that most all of the materials used to create our FireBowls are reclaimed from industrial sources."
