Lisa Elias Metal Studio

1129 Van Buren St NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413
Map & Directions



Elias Metal Studio is located in the heart of N.E. Minneapolis’s Arts District- it’s a charming building where I have been forging metal into graceful works of art- work that has is thoughtfully designed with purpose.

My work has been integrated into City’s sidewalks, historic parks, urban landscapes and the interior of homes. I create work that is meaningful and promotes identity- some are small gestures that have impact over time, others strike something more immediate and brings vibrancy to the landscape.

Some of my public art can be seen in Minneapolis and St. Paul- like the 200 artistically forged stop sign post installed in different St. Paul neighborhoods- making an everyday object into something beautiful, or a drinking fountain in the busy Downtown Corridor of Minneapolis- providing clean drinking water to everyone.

I do private commissions along with hosting a couple of open studio events each year where you’ll find a variety of forged metal work for your home or garden- using my beautiful organic designs.

I’m open by appointment- please call me @ 612-362-9570

*if needed- I can arrange delivery or shipping options.
