Frankie Flood is an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where he teaches in the Jewelry & Metalsmithing area and oversees the Digital Craft Research Lab at UWM. Flood’s interest in machines and tools and the influence of his working class upbringing is a source of inspiration for the functional objects that he creates. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, received many awards, and published widely. The connection between design and fabrication and how each is influenced by material and process has been the focus of Flood’s recent research.
*Directions: Kenilworth Square East in on the south side of E. Kenilworth Place between Farwell and Prospect. Enter through the paved walkway in the center of the block. Door is toward the back on the east side. Elevators to 6th floor and you are there!
