EDL Studios

 
Showroom, Sculpture Studio, and Office
 

Working from his studio north of New York City, sculptor Eric David Laxman creates a diverse body of work which includes museum quality sculpture, custom hand railings, furniture and decorative metal. Here he turns detailed drawings into substantive works of art in wood, stone, marble and granite, some as large as 50 feet in length and weighing as much as 5,000 lbs.

There are MIG and TIG welders, plasma cutters, chop saws and horizontal band saws in the 2400 square foot foundry-like space. Plus all the latent metal thatís sitting there, just waiting for Eric and his assistants to transform them from base materials to solid structures.

The adjoining lofted showroom has a wide range of Laxmanís unique tables, chairs, exotic wall art and unique railings on display. The finished work thatís highlighted in this suitably light and airy gallery stands in marked contrast to the pieces in progress in the industrial sculpture studio below.

Entrance to the showroom is off a side street in the somewhat Dickensian complex. An intricate metal entrance, with one of a kind landing and side rails, welcomes visitors and assures them theyíve arrived at EDL Studios.

The Laxman office, studio and showroom is located in the Garnerville Arts and Industrial center, a landmark mill complex located in the lower Hudson Valley. Dating from before the Civil War, the former dye works factory is home now to a number of experimental artists, giving it a distinct SoHo character in the Rockland County, NY suburbs.
