A welder as a birthday present? What was her husband thinking! This turned out to be the most significant gift Heather ever received, as it set a new course for her creative work. Her experience in costume design has added a theatrical flair to the art she now fabricates in metal. John’s background in cabinet making brings construction expertise to the mix. Together the couple now work at their studio on the family farm near Guelph,ON, designing and producing a broad range of metal accents for the home and garden. Mix in some stainless steel jewellery, cold forged serving utensils and custom wood/metal furniture and you have Metallic Evolution.
