Etsy find :: Silent Iron Designs





Chicago artist and all around bad-ass James Bowman, Jr., has some pretty amazing pieces of art for sale.  You can find some online in his newly-opened Etsy shop, SilentIronDesigns, and if you live in Chicago you can check them out in the flesh at Komoda on Chicago Ave.  Each piece is one of a kind and completely incredible.  The process it takes to make these sculptures is so amazing, hot and time-consuming.  Last summer, we were treated to an evening at Central Park Arts to watch an iron pour (we specifically watched candle holders being made, which are now displayed proudly in our living room since they were a wonderful wedding gift) and it totally blew me away.  You've gotta give credit where credit is due - it takes true talent to make stuff like this!
