My work is all about recharging connection with our communities and the natural world. I create pieces of value and hope for individuals, communities, future generations and hence society at large through work that is focused on the history and community of the place where it is installed. The work brings people together in both dialogue, physical engagement and interaction.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Brian has the unique ability to transform design constraints into fertile ground for thoughtful and meaningful artistic expression. I led Brian and a team of 50+ artists and creators for a large-scale artistic production and Brian is one of the most responsible, diligent, and brilliant artists I have ever had the joy to work with. From the very first design brainstorm to project completion, Brian consistently delivered fresh and inspiring ideas while effectively collaborating with the larger team to deliver projects on time and on budget. And everyone who has seen Brian’s work is impressed with the ingenuity and craftsmanship.
I believe Brian is one of the most talented public art sculptors in America and I couldn’t speak highly enough of his person, his vision, and his work.

“Working with Brian is always surprising, delightful, and productive. I have rarely met anyone as consistent, creative, and committed to his partnership with his clients. His work at our school helped transform the space and it has inspired the students every day since the job was finished. We recommend him constantly.
Brian Enright is truly a unique and exceptional find when it comes to wood and steel work. His combination of (1) creative design, (2) extremely high quality of work with a keen eye for the details, and (3) reliability as an organized and deadline driven professional, truly set him apart from any other artist/designer/carpenter/steel worker I have ever worked with.
...his range of possible projects in both the wood and steel arenas is tremendous.
Throughout the organization and design process, he is a responsible business owner, excellent communicator and a reliable man of his word. We feel extremely fortunate to have found him and hope to continue creating incredible work with him for years to come.

“I’ve worked with Brian on several large commissions ranging from custom welded tables and sculptures to custom barn doors and detailed wood-working. He’s one of the most creative and hard-working people I know, and it’s beyond a joy to get to work with him.
