David M Bowman and Reed C Bowman

David M Bowman Studio

"My sense of form and composition comes from close and long study of natural forms, architecture from all periods, the compositions of the masters of painting, and the work of other contemporary and ancient craftspeople."

David M. Bowman Studio consists of two people: David Mills Bowman and his son, Reed Christopher Bowman. David and Reed craft most pieces together. They construct all pieces by hand, with hand tools and simple machines. No part of the production is ever hired out, nor does the studio take in work to produce or patina parts for other artists' designs. Wallpieces are one of a kind.

All of their work is produced from brass sheet and rod, formed into shape, and brazed together using an oxyacetylene welding torch. David and Reed mix patina chemicals from scratch and apply them by hand.

David began working in metal in 1971, near the time Reed was born; he first made silver jewelry, and later moved on to brass belt buckles, then to larger pieces in patinated brass. Over the years, David has worked alone or with different assistants, but he has worked exclusively with Reed since the mid-1990s.

"My work with wallpieces reflects my interest in achieving balance in asymmetrical forms. I enjoy the constraints of working with our simple tools and limited palette of patinas."
