Tristan Butler

Tristan Butler is a forged metal designer who utilises a combination of materials to create furniture, functional items and sculptural work. He is primarily driven by aesthetic beauty and functionality in his work, crafting exquisite, well-made pieces.

Tristan is a lifelong fan of visual storytelling for the creative spark and wisdom it imparts. To explore this passion his creative process begins with taking inspiration from pop culture such as film and game design which he uses to create visual aesthetics to feed back into his own work. These inspirational cues come in the form of shapes, patterns and styles that he finds visually pleasing. Other creative cues are found in the complex characters and emotive storytelling found within these mediums.
