Renowned Charlotte Architect Lindsay Daniel Gives Iron Fish Tips

I do not use these fish sculptures for just coastal décor.  Iron Fish Art has well crafted Objects d’art that I can use in any of my traditional or contemporary architecture (home, office, or retail establishments).  The simplicity and classic lines of Chases’ coastal sculptures creates the timelessness that each piece holds and opens their application to many interior styles and uses.

Besides the typical application as wall art, singular or in groupings, I am using them as light fixtures (backlit) in hallways and other accent lighting areas.  The love of iron work on light fixtures has endured for centuries and blends well with soft and strong color palettes as well as construction textures.  The potential is endless!

On a stairwell’s landing, the 7 ft mermaid will not only give some much needed attention to a seldom used space, but will absorb some of the vastness and height the area presents. (more…)

Being a professional artist over the past years I have had many people ask many times, “how do you come up with these ideas?”.  Not wanting to go in to my long and often confusing version of my belief in a higher power, it is so simple for me to explain that I was born in to it.  Literally, art is in my blood.

My aunt, Lindsay Daniel, president and founder of Lindsay Daniel Architecture has made an incredible name for herself in the world or Architects.  Her firm in Charlotte, NC(yes the city that used to be a town) has a portfolio that would impress the most harsh of critics.  She has been an incredible influence on my work simply through my observation of her discipline.  I would say that the best lesson I have learned from her is that you never stop developing as an artist.
