Liz Judkins, of Saw Tooth Metal, specializes in making objects out of forged and fabricated steel and found objects. The idea is to create something new, or to re-create one thing into something for which it wasn't originally intended. The boxes are meant to contain jewelry, memorabilia or the little objects we pick up along our way through life for which we have no literal use.
This blog will catalog projects of various sorts, metal and otherwise.
