Dog days of summer, last . . . I lay in bed, dreaming of creating an office/studio haven in our home. Pieces of the puzzle fell into place quickly. . . they included a comfy brown leather Restoration Hardware couch . . . a pile of books by Robert Frank, Walker Evans, and Henri Cartier-Bresson . . . and key pieces of art with a little kitsch thrown in for fun, but the glitch was creating a well lit workspace in the room without adding weight. Solution? A floating glass desk, supported by three iron art deco brackets.
Enter Peter Krug, to whom I explained my vision, and a week later my glass work space floated weightlessly. haha! Artistic perfection. Ummm, Peter’s, not mine.
Quickly, I invited myself into Peter’s studio, wanting to share his gift with the world. Peter Krug, owner of the oldest ironworks factory in the United States. His family’s work has graced Baltimore’s Washington Monument, Johns Hopkins University, and the Basilica of the Assumption.
Our challenge? To create and capture light. Shutter drag, long lens, and strobe flash were all considerations. And Peter was a gamer to play along.
The view from Peter’s studio. Right out front, smack in the middle of the city. That cute lil red number? I’ll call it “the oooo . . . oooo . . . pick me!” That’s my choice. Yep.
Neighborhood flava. That yellow wall just makes me smile from the inside out. Yeah, I love my quirky girl, Bmore.
