Joanne Schoeb Taplin

The Art:
Custom Metalworker

The Work:
If Joanne Taplin were a forger of metals, she would make a sword, and it would be an instrument that embodied the perfect union of mystery, simplicity, beauty and ingenuity. She is the first to tell you that she is a fabricator, though, not a forger, and finds her joy in joining pieces of metal to create highly original furniture pieces. Intrigued by the lyrical symmetry of mathematical forms like the Realeaux triangle, challenged by the demands of function and captivated by the infinite possibilities for design solutions, Taplin has found her artistic niche as a metals artisan. Currently Taplin’s time is spent on commissions and her own creations, but there is a constant interplay between the two.
