In a small artist’s village in Israel in 1975 Richard Byrne, a metalsmith specializing in bronze, and Donna Zarbin-Byrne, a fine artist, first met and forged their artistic partnership. The combination of their unique talents, extraordinary technical skill, and aesthetic sensibility invigorates the studio to this day. Byrne’s and Zarbin-Byrne’s broad range of skills makes them uniquely versatile; equipped to handle the restoration of a delicate family heirloom just as well as the fabrication of site-specific public sculptures.
