HEDRON studio is a design and fabrication studio in Brooklyn, NYC
HEDRON studio is a design and fabrication studio in Brooklyn, NYC, founded by Abigail Lloyd in 2013. We love metal! Hedron works in a variety of contexts: custom projects, set design, furniture, lighting, props, outdoor/indoor, public work, residential, commercial and sculptural.
Abigail got interested in metal-working while studying at Bard College. After graduating in 2007, she worked at a blacksmith shop and as a freelance steel fabricator before committing to a full-time studio practice in Brooklyn.
Although primarily working in steel, Abigail also incorporates reclaimed wood, concrete, plaster, and other media in her work. Originally from Maine, and by way of the Bay Area, Abigail pulls from a varied landscape for aesthetic content. She looks to geometry textbooks, femme maximalisms, quilts, the minimalism of Agnes Martin, bridges, locomotion, the freeway system, Bath Iron Works, stars and fractals for reference material.
Smaller is Better
We are a small and intimate company, so you can be sure we’ll listen and work closely with you. We only take on projects that we feel positive about: we believe in our work and in close relationships with our clients.
Hedron uses reclaimed materials whenever possible, and everything we make is fabricated to be an "heirloom piece,” lasting you a lifetime. We guarantee our furniture and sculptural pieces forever. Please see shipping and terms for a complete over-view of our guarantee. In the studio, we also avidly recycle our scrap metal: some is used in our workshops for students to sift through making their sculptures, and the remainder finds itself at the scrap metal yard, to be bundled and cubed for re-use.
We are committed to working with other professionals who are women and queer people. Our workshops are geared towards women and queer people to share the sense of power and strength that comes from welding. Visit our workshops page for more information.
Inside the Studio
Our studio is packed with well-organized and labeled hand tools, 1 TIG and 2 MIG welders and plasma cutter, raw materials including stock steel, chunks of brass, slabs of live-edge maple, 8x4 sheets of colored acrylic, and plastic sorting boxes with tiny pieces of steel, heavy machinery, large metal working tables, corrosive and flammable cabinets with a huge array of paints, spray paint, patinas, stains + blackeners, etc, shelves of sorted scrap metal, my cassette player from the 90s + cassette collection, tube benders, radius bender, brake, various metalworking books, a stained glass working bench, vintage shelves we collect to organize tools, safety supplies, stress-relief rubber mats, etc, etc, etc. When we have a project that requires tools not available in our home studio we team up with friends or rent space and equipment as needed.
