Ben and Kate Gatski
Before founding their metal business in 2003, Ben and Kate Gatski both worked in agriculture. Now that they're making art, they want to honor agriculture through their designs.
Ben started his own organic dairy business at 19 and Kate worked for the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, which helps to inform farmers about organic and sustainable techniques. Now that they're full-time makers, much of their art starts on the farm. To create their work, they hand select old machinery found on local farms. By tearing apart large equipment to get smaller parts, they're able to create unique sculptures that contain pieces of the past.
