Gauge Inc. located in Brooklyn, NY has been handcrafting unique objects in metal for many years. Founded by Paul Smotrys, a self-taught artist, he started showing his sculpture in Philadelphia in his early twenties. “I’ve always been fascinated by the opposing properties of metal. For example, hard/soft, sharp/smooth, immediate/laborious.” He met Mie back in 1985, together they started making jewelry. It’s always have been important to make every item by hand. The products are so clean and simple, the quality had to be superb and it needed to have that individual, show of hand that only handmade items would have.
