One of my mini-joy in life is to observe people who are passionate about their work. To see creation happen from concept, design, process, then to final execution–genesis. I had the pleasure of photographing Majer Metal Works (www.majermetalworks.com) at work and play. I love being at their shop–sound of machinery, the grinding smell, sparks flying like fireflies. Not to mention the people there are super cool to hang out with. It’s primitively and intellectually beautiful to see things created with one’s hand–simply handsome.
These stanchions were laser cut stainless and hand milled bronze by Majer Metal Works. Commissioned by John Hopkins Hospital Interfaith Chapel each piece stands about six feet tall (182.88 cm). These stanchions are interchangeable since the chapel hosts various beliefs. Learn more about their weekly worship service.
Majer Metal Works is a boutique metal shop located heart of Baltimore, Maryland. They specialize in furnitures, handsome metal hooks, ergonomic bike rack, slick metal rails and etc. One of my favorite is the metal hook set–I can imagine my cast iron skillets being very happy being hooked up. While I observing them working on a project, it was very clear they handle metal with ease like it was origami. They imagine it, quickly sketch it, and “POW!!” its materialized.
