All You Need is L-O-V-E

American Sign Language (ASL) is an elegant dance of fingers, hands, and arms. We can't think of a better way to say "love" (without literally saying it). Inspired by this universal expression, Stephen Zawistowski crafts his steel sculpture as a series of four hands spelling out the sentiment in ASL. Part playful and part heartfelt, it celebrates the emotion silently without relying on over-the-top, flowery detail or design cliches. Remind someone that they're loved with this thoughtful show of hands, or brighten your own desk with a warm conversation starter. Handmade in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

Steve Zawistowski still remembers the first time he saw an ironworker forge two pieces of steel into one. The sparks, the noise, and the heat all became a symphony of creation. Years later, he saw a welder at a yard sale down the road. He slid on a welding mask and went to work right in his front yard, practicing until he had it down.
Since then, Steve has assembled a unique collection of new, vintage, and custom-made tools. This collection allows him to work in the time tested old style methods, all the while incorporating the freedom of creativity allowed by the modern techniques.
Steve's steel sculptures are inspired by American Sign Language. He remembers the girls in his seventh grade class using it to communicate in secret. "It drove us guys crazy, but it also fascinated me, and I wondered why more people didn't use it," he says. Now you can keep one of his sculptures that he calls "quiet comments" on your desk as a subtle reminder of love or peace.
