ABOUT THE ARTIST
Rick Wittrig was born and raised in a tiny Mennonite farming village amid the endless sea of corn and soybeans that is the Illinois prairie. He learned steel fabrication and carpentry skills building farm equipment and homes. Admiring the strong work ethic, high quality products and integrity of the craftsman with whom he worked, Rick carries those values into creating his functional steel art. He now lives on Barton’s Creek in Tennessee with his family and enjoys making beautiful fire pits for others to enjoy. A highlight in his career was creating a commissioned Fire Pit for 2010 Winter Olympics in Whistler B.C. Canada.
