Brandy Guidry Aube'
Metal Work and “Functional Art”
Native to the Lafayette, Louisiana area, Brandy has spent the better part of her life in Cecilia, Louisiana. While studying Industrial Design at the University of Southwestern Louisiana Brandy began to direct her design focus towards mass-produced products. Still having a deep appreciation for the arts and understanding the significance of individualism Brandy began to create what she has labeled as “functional art.” This functional art incorporates the design ideology of mass produced products with the uniqueness of individual pieces of art. This in turn creates pieces that consider both human factors as well as an aesthetic pleasure. She combines sewing, photography, and metalwork into a diverse repertoire of work ranging from furniture to fashion accessories.
