The clean lines and repetitive nature in urban landscapes inspired Joy's work, as well as mid-century design. She uses a variety of metals such as pewter, brass, bronze, silver and copper to produce her designs. Joy Stember's collection is handmade in the United States and each piece is lovingly fabricated by scoring and folding sheets of pewter to make 3 dimensional works of art. The gorgeous textures are pulled from many influences and are embossed into the metal. As a designer and maker, her intent is to encourage the importance of American high-end craft in the modern home by creating contemporary heirlooms for a new generation of collectors.
