Yorke Graham has always loved fixing and building things.
One day, while combing the neighborhood beach, Yorke happened upon an old water tank washed up on shore. The buffeted metal with its rich patina finish captivated him; it conveyed something of the changeful sea he has loved since he was a kid. After hauling it home, he transformed the piece, and today, that water tank is a huge, funky fish hanging in his foyer, the first catch that lured him into metal sculpture. With the collaboration of his wife Karen, Yorke has created a menagerie of robots, herons, whales, tables, and other works of art from recycled and vintage finds. He loves working with both cherished mementos and objects destined to be destroyed or forgotten to create whimsical, unique, and thought-provoking collector pieces. Yorke's sense of humor, amazing imagination, and design aesthetic are evident in each piece he creates.
