Baltimore city-inspired coffee table by Scott Cawood
Sharpsburg-based artist Scott Cawood was inspired to create this scrap metal sculpture based on the Baltimore skyline (finally, the Smurfs can get a better view of the Inner Harbor) by the texture of cities. Manhattan gave him the idea, but he started in 2001 with Baltimore, a city with which he's more intimately acquainted—and that familiarity is also part of the "texture," he says.
Annapolis-inspired coffee table by Scott Cawood
He tackled NYC second. In fact, he was working on the first section—the Twin Towers, to establish scale—on Sept. 11, 2001. Despite that day's jarring skyline alteration, he did include them, noting that skylines always change, and each piece is a sculpture in time. Next was Annapolis, above. He's also done a DC coffee table on commission, and the day before we spoke with him, he'd received an inquiry for a San Francisco commission, which he accepted. Scott tells us each sculpture takes six to eight months (he's usually working on another project at the same time) and sells for about $8,000. Check out more of his work here.
