Lisa D'Agostino grew up interested in art, science, and literature; her reading lists included hundreds of novels, astronomy textbooks, and nature books. Her focus has been on art, and she is inspired by the mysteries of cosmology and nature. Her work plays with the connections between natural science and art, geometry and organic form.
Each piece is formed by the artist using plastic or metal hammers. The hammer choice affects the design: plastic hammers do not make marks, while metal hammers leave marks on the surface. After forming the metal, various types of soldered constructions complete the design. D'Agostino loves complexity and creates complicated soldered pieces whenever the design calls for it.
Lisa D'Agostino received an MFA from the University of Kansas. To continue her education, she has taken workshops in many disciplines. The book "Foldforming" by Charles Lewton-Brain has greatly influenced the organic direction of her work. She has participated in hundreds of art fairs across the country.
