Bruce Fox (1903-1960) was an American artist, sculptor, and visionary who learned the trade of metal-smiting in a tradition native to Panama during an exploration of South America in his early life.
Later, when he began to produce decorative pieces and giftware in New Albany, Indiana, he combined the traditional methods of metalworking he'd learned with the most high-tech material of his era, aluminum.
