June's Artist Feature

Francis Metal Works

Based in Minnesota

Charles Adams and Thomas Widhalm created these wonderful sculptures by marrying their passion for gardening with Chuck’s 40-year background as a jeweler and Tom’s 33 years as a creative metal worker. 

Each spring, Minnesota farmers discover the earth has once again given birth to stones of every imaginable shape and size. Which appear to have magically popped to the surface of the farmer’s field, hence they are called fieldstone. This phenomenon is due to the cyclical freezing and thawing of the ground. Often they appear as if giant birds have laid eggs all over the ground.

 

At Francis Metal Works, we select the finest of these fieldstones from the farms that grow them and add our unique copyrighted iron work to create one of kind sculptures that will adorn that special place for generations.
