Eco-Artist Goes Nuts

Eco-Artist Tammy Roe is on the hunt, proving one man’s trash can be another woman’s treasure.

This former graphic designer and mom of three tossed aside her fonts, paper samples and color charts to instead strap-on a pair of goggles, fire-up a welding torch and head to the local dumpster.

Tammy now spends hours combing through scrapyards, discovering and reclaiming the industrial objects that inspire her one-of-a-kind, heavy-metal masterpieces. Working in a medium of nuts, bolts, washers, hinges, metal tools and gages, Tammy carefully arranges and fuses each creation, breathing new life into discarded everyday objects transformed into detailed and amazing sculpture.

Tammy Roe’s collection is carried at Sawbridge Studios, located in suburban Chicago at 1015 Tower Court, Winnetka, Illinois, 847-441-2441 and on-line at

Sawbridge Studios carries the works of over 80 individual American designers, artisans and craftsmen, and has grown to become one of the country’s largest sources for original, handcrafted design.
