Kristen Arden’s metal sculptures take shape with the help of power tools, patina techniques and happy accidents. Whether working on wall hangings or furniture, her torch coaxes mottled strokes, nooks, ridges and tender curves out of the metal to create unexpected shapes or finishes. Since moving to Minneapolis in 2003 and setting up shop in the Northrup King building, Arden’s work has focused on a variety of different series as well as custom creations. Educators' Guide
