“I enjoy metal as an artistic medium. It is plastic, malleable, and can be worked into any shape. I like to see the transformation as I heat, hammer, twist and bend it. I want people to see the organic shapes I see in a piece of metal, instead of something angular and rigid. Curling and rounding, soften hard edges. Warm tones emerge through heat and chemical processes as each piece takes on a character of its own.
I try to avoid designs that stingy or ostentatious, rather I work to find simple elegance. The end result should be natural, pleasing to the eye, and be functional and unique. My ultimate goal is to create items that are the treasured antiques and heirlooms of tomorrow.” – Bert Romans
