“Experimentation is the true force behind our designing.”
As an art student at University of Kansas in the 1970’s, John Whitney would sketch his future wife Linda’s orchestra rehearsals and quartet workshops. Gathering inspiration from the alluring sounds and sleek structure of the instruments, John turned the drawings into sculpted figures using traditional metalsmith techniques. Today, John and Linda design their one-of-a-kind creations together in Sarasota, Florida. With the help of their studio assistant, and their perky Havenese “art dogs,” they invent, forge, and stretch the possibilities of their beloved craft.
