Catherine Tweedie

My name is Cat Tweedie Ball. I make metal sculpture ranging from several inches to several feet. I use primarily re-purposed metals from bicycles and construction. I like to make the sculpture smile-evoking and serve some need or purpose for people who interact with them.
For example, I love koi and wanted to make a large metal fish to hang on the wall. We also have scarves and ties in our house that resist taming. I made a fish where each scale is a pocket for a beautifully colored and textured tie or scarf.
I live in Davis Square and create at Artisan's Asylum near Union Square.
