Just like the objects she creates, Stephanie’s career trajectory was rather unexpected. She studied graphic design, but it was after art school and years of working on a computer, that she discovered her love of power tools and vintage discards. These projects eventually became less of a hobby and more of a large-scale obsession, and now Stephanie spends her days scouring old barns and estate sales looking for unique pieces to transform into functional lighting and décor. Some of the more unusual materials that have made their way into her work include emu eggs, microscope slides, horse tack and Barbicide jars. She combines these with iron, wood and leather and before welding or casting them in concrete to take an ordinary object and turn it into an extraordinary work of art.
