Owners Brad Oldham and Christy Coltrin approach their craft in the same manner as they do their life: in collaboration. There's a flash of inspiration and they riff on possibility and narrative. Then the artists each seek his or her individual creative path to make it come to fruition. Brad sculpts and shapes clay figures to create a prototype involving intricate molds, welding, and casting waxes ultimately yielding brilliant stainless steel, bronze, aluminum or brass pieces. Christy builds the character of the piece - her medium is vivid imagination - bringing the story to life. What results is a sculpture that takes flight, like their iconic BIRD, to land in homes, neighborhoods, public spaces, and institutions where the rest of the poetic story unfolds.
From public community spaces to private homes, sculptor Brad Oldham has earned recognition by elevating many environments worldwide with his site-specific artworks and has earned recognition. In 2011, the Texas Society of Architects recognized Oldham with its prestigious Artisan Award and heralded him as the Artist/Craftsman of the Year by the American Institute for Architects.
