Callie Warner, metal scuplter, at Johnny's

  • Johnny's 901 W. MAIN STREET CARRBORO, NC 27510 (map)

At Johnny's, Callie has got metal sculptural masks and reverse paintings on glass in metal frames for sale. She is hoping to clear out her inventory so she is cutting prices. Alison Weiner will be playing some awesome jazz too!

For over fifteen years, CALLIE WARNER has been fabricating elegant metalwork from the historic scrap of the Chapel Hill (NC) area. Her aesthetic is informed both by the plantation history of the South – it's machinery, myth, and sensibility – and the increasingly rapid lifestyle of its current residents. Warner's sculpture, be it in the form of a large corporate office table, birdbath, lamp, or interior fixture, always reminds its viewer of the innate human effort required for its existence. While engine gears, flywheels, cast-iron, and turn-of-the-century machine parts often find their way into fabrication process, the work does not depend merely on "found" objects. Each piece is absolutely unique and requires painstaking care in its design and construction. The result is a dynamic, though fluid, transformation of the past into a practical and beautiful artwork for the future.

CALLIE METAL DESIGN is a company committed to one-of-a-kind, local, and sustainably produced designs. CMD also specializes in private commissions, custom welding and metalwork, and even small "gift" commissions. If you have an idea, CMD can design and fabricate according to your needs. We hope you like what you see here. Website
