The landscape of our eastern farmlands is often dotted with the rusting remains of old farm machinery that’s outlived its usefulness. One couple is re-using this material with great results. Kate and Ben Gatski design and fabricate their folk art, furniture and sculptures with the reclaimed metal recovered from outdated farm machinery and the salvaged barnwood they gather from their rural Pennsylvania area.

The couple’s studio overlooks the Gatski family farm which provides inspiration for the couple’s folk art. The metalwork is welded by Ben and embodies the character and patina of the original farm machinery derived from years of work in the fields.
