Ethic & Ways of Being


We bend and join metal into rare forms. Sustainability is central to our work.

Founder and designer Cara says:

I come from a math-y and musical family. In my Brooklyn metal studio I sculpt objects that have a formal elegance and internal harmony, with a splash of chaos that mimics the element of chance in the natural world.

Just as important as parsimony in my forms is parsimony in their impact on the Earth. Metal's properties make it the only common building material that can be infinitely reused. Raw steel and aluminum are largely recycled. Metal's environmental bent and its superstrength have always made this material seductive to me.

My practice doesn't stop with the core material; equally important has been sourcing packaging that is plastic free, fully recycled, and fully recyclable.
