Eric Meyer welds and shapes handmade kitchen utensils out of pewter, silver, bronze, aluminum, and brass. His handmade objects, including a tea set, goblets, a tea infuser, and cutlery, have an opulence fit for royalty.
According to his artist statement, Meyer aims to make others aware of the beauty surrounding them, particularly in objects that are normally overlooked. By creating a piece by hand, Meyer strives to make an object more unique and beautiful. With this in mind, he produces small, functional items, which are unique but retain a connection to their original purposes.
His other goal is to create pieces that will be loved and treasured by others. He believes that by producing precious objects, he is serving a purpose in being a creator.
Meyer graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art in Metals & Jewelry.
