AS SEEN AT THE SAUSALITO ART FESTIVAL!
I have been blessed for years to have the privilege working with Daniel Krivens. We first met when he needed help dismantling riveted beam sections from the old Golden Gate bridge approach. I think we may have done some Bay Bridge parts as well. Daniel is truly an artist who sees the beauty in the discarded, rusted, bent and abandoned municipal structures. Weather he is building a coffee table out of a split fire hydrant, or a dining table from Bay Bridge supports, his eye is trained to see more than scrap metal. Recently I was able to help with a new metal fabrication to form a table base for Daniel. Once I shipped the TIG welded steel base to his shop in SOMA, he graced it with beautiful found wood tops in the shape of a propeller. The wood came from a stash of Transbay piling beams that Daniel has transformed into gorgeous shaped tables. The pilings were huge and quite old so the grain structure is extremely dramatic. Please check out his site, super interesting! http://www.krivens.com/ Poke around on his site and you will see several items I have fabricated. I love working with Daniel because his art mixes clever strength and simplicity while remaining sharp. The contrast of materials always invokes interest especially when you find out what they are from…There is more to come from Daniel Krivens very soon!
Now, go purchase some functional art!
