Artist Statement

"My metalwork is inspired by the world I see around me…

I like to combine the industrial feeling of a city with the delicate beauty of life and nature. This combination provides a brilliant example of the way something gritty and edgy can still be soft and intricate. I love seeing the way even the most resistant pieces of metal can be made into something that can mimic even the subtlest characteristics of the world.

That is the essence of metalworking – taking something hard and immoveable and forging it until it becomes something even more beautiful."

- Lauren Stoy, Founder & Creator, L2 Creations
