CUSTOM PIECES:

Fitzmark – 2017
Corporate Branded / Custom Art

In 2017, local Artist Ash Robinson and Consuelo Poland; Founder of Latinas Welding Guild Inc, were approached by Fitzmark about doing a corporate branded piece for their entry way. Ash’s experience as a woodworker and position at the Eiteljorg helped with the fine woodworking and installation of her design for this large scale piece. Consuelo’s previous welding and fabrication experience supported the construction of this original piece while adding in a custom end table to match the entry way.
