Shawn Lovell

I first came across Shawn Lovell's work when I was searching for a metal four-poster bed. I'm always interested in finding local artists and was thrilled that this amazing metalworker is based in Oakland. To me, Shawn's designs are organic, with a natural flow and movement, they are also dreamlike and poetic.

Shawn's work has ranged from large scale railings, gates, doors, arbors to firescreens, furniture, lighting and much more. Shawn also specializes in making one-of-a-kind and commissioned work both commercial and residential using both traditional and modern forging techniques.

Shawn graduated with high distinction from CCAC with a degree in sculpture and working as an artists assistant. She started Shawn Lovell Metalworks in 1996.
If you would like to see more of Shawn's work and the metalwork process she uses, then check out her website:
