Artist Comment:

My desire, my passion is creating art. Even as a young child I have always enjoyed sketching, sculpting with clay, painting even cartooning. Now as a growing artist, I draw inspiration from organic and inorganic forms. Nature, architecture and the feminine form are expressed in many ways through my sculptural metal and other multimedia pieces I have designed and built. The best part is if I can think of it I can find a way to represent and build it and do it myself.

Artist Bio:

Dawson Metal Design is an artistic metal welding studio based out of Toronto, Ontario. Designer and owner Dawson Calvert specializes in custom interior and exterior metal décor and design.

Her passion lies with sculpting metal into realistic or abstract functional and nonfunctional pieces. Metal at times can seem very rigid; long cold rolled tubes, 4x8 hot rolled sheet but when it is heated, bent, cut and formed it can create unique, warm, soft even sensual pieces of art that anyone can enjoy.

This studio works both in steel and stainless steel. It offers MIG and TIG welding styles; as well as plasma cutting, bending, drilling and forging. Wood, glass and fabric can also be incorporated into most designs.

Dawson Calvert graduated school with a Fine Arts Degree from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ont. She majored in sculpting and printmaking but also has a love for pencil drawing.

Dawson moved to Toronto, Ont to continue her education in the field of 3-D Animation (Softimage) at Seneca College. She realized she has more of a passion for designing and hands on building which inspired her to follow her dream of being a sculptor.

A few years ago Dawson took a variety of TSSA welding course as ITT (Institute of Technical Trade) to learn the art of welding. Shortly after completing those courses she found a position working for an Artistic Welding Company in Toronto. There she learned how to create steel and stainless steel furniture, railings and a variety of other artistic metal pieces.

There came a time she needed to branch out on her own. She started her company dawson metal design in July of 2007.
