AGRISCULPTURE is Farm Equipment – Lovingly Rethought. It was born with passion for agricultural forms, and vision for seeing beyond rust and time. Hudson Valley native Amy Lewis Sweetman founded AGRISCULPTURE in 2012 with a metal fountain commission from Cornell University Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County, and has been working in agrisculptural transformation ever since! With a degree in Architecture from Cornell University and a certification in Welding, all Amy’s AGRISCULPTURES are original works, thoughtfully hand-crafted on the Sweetman Dairy Farm of Warwick, NY. AGRISCULPTURES have been featured at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair as well as in magazines, newspapers, websites, blogs, radio and film. When Amy is not in the barnyard shop welding with her Husband Douglas Sweetman, she’s out scouting for farm equipment or giving workshops.
