Erica Moody | Fine Metal Work

Erica has been working professionally as a metal craftsman since 1994, and in 2001 founded her business Magma Metalworks, Inc., (now operating under her own name) which provides a range of custom metalwork commissions to architects and designers, such as furniture and hardware.  In 2016 she started a line of personal work, in small metal serving utensils, which has quickly attracted attention from publications such as Bon Apetite, New York Times Style Magazine, and Esquire to name a few. She balances the studio work with private and guest instruction at colleges, and workshops at craft, furniture, and boat building schools. Erica lives off her craft, residing in Waldoboro, Maine.
