ALEX HENDERSON - METAL SCULPTURE

Working in a large warehouse on the eastern edge of Port St. Joe, Alex Henderson strives to master the elements. From redesigning traditional coastal dune fences to be more durable and effective to creating fanciful seascape railings from steel, Alex has the enviable ability to merge utility with creativity and create functional art. Examples of his work can be found in and around regional homes, at WindMark Beach, and at the homeowner’s pavilion on St. George Island.

Alex moved to Port St. Joe from Atlanta in 2002. He dissolved Blood, Sweat and Steel, a company with more than 40 employees, and created Monumental Fabrication, a six-member team. “I wasn’t able to make art (when in Atlanta),” Alex says. “I had to be a disciplinarian. I took a pay cut to move down here, but so what? I enjoy it more here.”

Made of reclaimed steel jet engine exhaust pipes, this 18"-tall table is topped with clear glass...the better to see the exhaust's sculptural form.

We've seen tables made from space-age metals to tree stumps, but we can't say we've ever seen one made from a jet engine. And that's exactly what this table is constructed from (OK, and a little glass as well). Made by CustomMade artisan Alex Henderson of Monumental Fabrication of America, the table is a testament to the stylistic power of creative reuse

Although artist/entrepreneur Henderson, 31, is no Superman, his works sometimes prompt people to gaze at the sky in amazement. Henderson welds, bends and shapes all kinds of metal into large ornamental designs used on buildings' facades, indoors and for other uses.
