This is Anne from Stonybrook Fine Arts, a sculpture studio in Boston. She, her husband, Morris Norvin, and Benjamin Todd opened up the space in 2007. They offer classes in different sculptural media including welding, bronze and aluminum casting, jewelry, lost wax casting, mold making, stone carving and live figure sculpture. Anne is an artist, a teacher, and a managing partner of Stonybrook. Her preferred mediums are glass and metal. I got to hang out with her while she was doing a little metal working. Her favorite piece of Carhartt clothing is the women’s tomboy jacket because she can wear it in the shop and still look great when she hops on the back of her husband’s motorcycle to go to dinner.

Carhartt does not make any garments that are specifically designed to be worn when welding. Carhartt Flame-Resistant Clothing will protect better than 100% cotton or synthetic garments because the FR fabric is self-extinguishing. However, flame-resistant clothing is susceptible to holes and fabric burns created by sparks and metal debris generated by activities such as welding.
