We create sandblasted wall hangings, from old reclaimed wood and iron forms that we find within the city of Boston. In the process of manufacturing forged iron railings, the iron is sandblasted to give it a smooth uniform finish, while the plywood that lays beneath the ironwork becomes a bas-relief of the design. We are fascinated by the delicate and subtle etching that the sandblasting creates on the aged, rough, utilitarian plywood,revealing the strength and grace of the ironwork. The process becomes a convergence of two urban ghosts which, begins to reveal the story behind their existence, and strikes a balance between delicate articulated craft and the roughness and idiosyncrasy that comes with age. Through this project we will explore and create new lives for these discarded materials, allowing them to take on the spirit and history of the city’s architecture. Our goal is to elevate these lost materials from industrial by-products to works of fine art. Read Less
