At Zahner, we understand the artistic challenges of realizing conceptual designs working in large-scale modern metal materials. Our Hands of the Artist team partners and collaborates with artists to ensure their design intent remains and is enhanced throughout the engineering and fabrication process.
We have the unique ability to manage the entire production process, from concept development and engineering, to budgeting with the artist, all the way to manufacturing and installation. We recognize that each artist and artwork is one-of-a-kind, so our clients can rest assured that their projects are handled with the utmost professionalism and personalized attention to detail.
Bill Zahner, CEO of Zahner, recently sat down with Jan Hendrix to discuss his creative process, his works, and their numerous collaborations over the past 15 years. Watch the 2-minute preview featuring highlights of their conversation.
Zahner’s fabrication facility has countless possibilities, and our expertise in metallurgy and engineering makes us more than capable of transforming an iconic design into a work of art that is buildable and structurally sound.
