Damian Velasquez is an Albuquerque-based designer and craftsman whose furniture designs emphasize form, function, simplicity and beauty. A former silversmith, Velasquez now works predominantly with welded steel, though he also explores materials such as wood, paint, powder coating and sandblasting. He describes his aesthetic as "less is more." Inspiration for Half13, his latest collection of outdoor furniture, stems from the time when true craftsmanship in design meant exploring the beauty in everyday objects .
