Boris Bally

"The Transit Series is designed to supply artistically aware consumers with a piece of raw American culture. The series pieces display their traffic-graffic roots with a useful Pop aesthetic and are an artistic trophy of our daily urban environment. "

Boris Bally's award-winning work is both witty and innovative, employing the use of jeweler's skills on non-precious materials. He transforms recycled street signs and found materials into objects for the home that celebrate a raw American street aesthetic.

Bally presses, forms, and rivets recycled street signs to create furniture and bowls. He handpicks the raw materials for their thickness, condition, color, and graphics. These industrial-strength pieces are as tactile and beautiful as they are strong and unique.

Boris Bally is a Swiss-trained metalsmith/designer working in Providence, Rhode Island, where he maintains his studio, Bally Humanufactured.
