Aunt B’s Place

Aunt B’s Place offers handcrafted industrial-style sculptural pieces, functional décor and accessories, and wearable works of art with a vintage steampunk feel.  Artist and owner Brenda Caldwell designs and creates each piece by hand, so no two items are identical. Her creations feature a wide variety of rather… well… unconventional materials.  A drawer handle becomes an elegant necklace.  Vacuum tubes and wire combine to create an intricate bird sculpture. Bullet casings become pocket-sized touchscreen styli.  Antique typewriter keys, light bulbs, clock works, cogs, gears, cabinet hinges, masonry nails, skeleton keys, and miscellaneous metal findings are transformed and repurposed in delightfully unexpected ways.  Ms. Caldwell, a resident of Fort Ashby, WV, was drawn to the steampunk and industrial art movement through her love of Victorian era antiques and design aesthetics.  Now, what started as a mere hobby has blossomed into a successful business venture as more and more people discover the wonderfully whimsical world of steampunk.

Lisa Morshead

Lisa Morshead started working with metal at the age of 48 after taking a weekend workshop at Penn Alps Spruce Forest with Doug Salmon.  She later continued her work and has apprenticed with Doug Salmon since 2010.  Fast forward 8 years, and she has a complete home studio with an increasing degree professional-grade equipment.  She also works full-time at FSU as an Assistant Professor of Psychology.  In her art work, she uses heat to “move metal”.  She loves flowing designs which evoke a sense of movement.  She also likes to make “statement pieces” which draw the eye of everyone in the room to the wearer’s attention.  She has begun to add quite a few pieces of work in Argentium sterling silver to her collection.  It is fused as opposed to soldered and, because some of the copper is removed and replaced by germanium, it is more tarnish resistant than traditional silver.
