Hsu studios

We are inspired to design enduring, vibrant artworks that transcend traditional form and complement everyone's environment. Change is always important to us in our artistic endeavors; we continually explore new possibilities of design and technique, and have expanded from the small scale of jewelry to much more voluminous mobiles and sculpture.

Beginning with mill-finish aluminum, we texture and anodize all of the metal before creating our pieces. The texturing is done by impressing fabrics into aluminum sheet with a rolling mill. Anodizing is an electrochemical process of oxidizing and dyeing the surface of the metal, providing an infinite array of colors. Due to environmental concerns and safety, all of our anodizing is done off-site by a family-run business a few hours away. We have 18 specific colors that they do to our specifications.
