A Extensive list of tin workers thanks to Jenny Fillius for the below text.
Jenny is a great artist who creates wondrous works in Tin, as well as staying in touch with a large collection of Tin workers. I stole this list of Tin artists from her. Many thanks Jenny.
West Virgina based artist Robert Villamagna creates large scale recycled tin artworks that are inventive and witty.
Harriete is the Queen of tin jewelery and other amazingly clever, detailed and well crafted tin artwork. She also has a blog where you can learn practical advice on the business of art. Link is on her site.
Ross Palmer Beecher, one of my all time favorite metalsmiths, has great web presence but no website of her own. The link is to a video that captures, her work, studio and her essence. She is represented by Greg Kucera in Seattle.
Okay just go to Kathy's site and check out her work. I'm not even going to try and explain it, you've just got to see it for yourself. Be sure to watch her video.
Check out Dave Yoas' awesome tin work by clicking on his name on the right side of the home page on Ladybug Circus. Also see a small handful of some tinsmiths who don't have their own websites.
Mr.Wasserman died on October 12, 1999 but his work lives on through the internet. His work is wonderful and inspiring.
The Fine Art of the Tin Can: Techniques and Inspirations by Bobby Hanson.
Bobby's book is a great book for the beginner.
South West tinsmith Jeri Moe creates 3 D tin works of art that are well thought out and highly desirable.
Brunt Offerings is the website for Opie & Linda O'Brien who create all sorts of fun and lively artwork with tin and other found objects. They also teach and have
published books on the subjects of their talents. Their site has a wealth of information about who they are.
Chris is a self described mixed media artist. Check out this cool video and see her work and oh so very excellent tin collection. Chris is represented by Snyderman-Works Gallery http://www.snyderman-works.com/artists/93
Nia works primarily with vintage tin and tin types. Each artwork is like a treasured jewel.
Deborah is a fearless artist, always pushing her tin work a little further and trying new ways to represent the material while incorporating other recyclables into her work.
Mimi Cahalan creates wall-mounted and 3d constructions in painted metal and wood, working in both small and large-scale artwork for interior and exterior spaces.
Bill doesn't have a website but there is a You Tube of him in his studio and you can see his work there. Bill was my teacher and his work is marvelous.
No list would be complete without Tony Berlant. He may very well have been nailing tin to wood longer than any of us. There is no way for me to describe his work. Also see more of his work here at Design Faith (http://designfaith.blogspot.com/2010/08/tony-berlant.html), Kenneth Caldwell's insightful blog.
David's artwork has a LA kind of esthetic, it's clean and bold and in your face, in a good way.
Rand has been around for years. His work is bold and colorful, and he plays a lot with words, cutting out letters from car name pieces. I like his landscapes the best.
