metal, glass, wood, stone
formed into expressions of the healing energy of nature
Living on the North Shore of Lake Superior, Sharon and Steve Frykman create art together drawn from the cycle of the seasons and their connection to the earth.
Metals forged or sculpted, glass kilnworked or in traditional Dalle de Verre techniques, and wood carved or hewn: all are formed by the Frykmans into expressions of the healing energy of nature.
Specializing in commissioned architectural installations, the Frykmans have works of all sizes installed in many private homes, local businesses and centers for healing, including The Angry Trout Cafe, the Grand Marais Art Colony, Sawtooth Mountain Clinic, Old Settlers’ Cemetery and Trinity Lutheran Church.
They recently completed a large kilnworked glass and steel installation for the new entrance of the North Shore Hospital (pictured above and to the left). This piece was a collaboration with and donated by the North Shore Hospital Auxilliary as a legacy for the women’s 61 years of service.
