About Paul Evans

A former metalworker, Paul Evans set up his own design studio in 1955 and, over the course of decades, became known for his sculpture, furniture, and contributions to the American Studio Craft Movement in the ’70s. The musician Lenny Kravitz once called Evans’s work, which he collects, “stunningly beautiful, stunningly ugly, stunningly tacky, stunningly sophisticated.” His career is divided into phases, each of which is defined by different styles and materials—the latter of which have included copper, bronze, pewter, sculpted steel, and argente. Hallmarks of his work include high relief, abstractly patterned surfaces, combining gilding, gnarled wood, and metal filigree. He also embraced and pioneered the integration of technology into design, including features such as remote-controlled doors and shelves in his creations.

American, 1931-1987, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, based in New Hope, Pennsylvania
