Logan Woodle’s works in metal deal with the mythologies that grow like weeds in the agrarian South. Woodle relates working in metal to that of the work of his ancestors in the fields of the family farm on which he now resides in Conway, SC. Much of their man-powered labor is now completed by machines. Woodle’s handcrafted metalworks are, in turn, an ode to his ancestral past. Each piece he creates is functional and uniquely whimsical, like his sterling silver and copper Gravy Boat that is shaped like a pig. They remind us not only of our agricultural heritage but also of the origin of the products we consume.

Woodle earned a BFA in sculpture from Winthrop University (SC) in 2009 and a MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Edinboro University (PA) in 2012. Woodle is an Assistant Professor of 3-D Art at Coastal Carolina University. His work has been featured in galleries and museums across the country and in the award winning book Humor in Craft by Brigitte Martin.
