    Timothy Poe

    1996 - 2020

    Timothy Poe is an Alabama native residing in Birmingham from 1989-2020. During the Summer of 1995 he attended the Pilchuck Glass School learning lead crystal casting techniques. Self employed as a decorative painter specializing in faux graining and marbling techniques. During this time 1993 thru1996 he attended the University of Alabama in Birmingham earning a B.A. in Art Studio graduating in 1996. In this same year he developed a working glass & metal casting studio, restoring the coal testing lab once part of the now dormant Republic Steel Works within the confines of Wade Sand and Gravel, Birmingham, Al. /www.thomasproject.org

    In 2006 he developed “Antique Mirror Patina Solution”, a unique process for distressing and imprinting the silver / reflective coating on new mirror. This process allowed Timothy to create special effects using new mirror and led to the development of a new style of decorative and fine art utilizing the reflective surface of new mirror.

    His aesthetic artistic focus was then and still remains multi media objects made in two and three dimensions with glass as the primary medium.

    Member of the Board, Thomas Coke Works Project, 1997.

    I was the first full-time artist chosen to develop studio space at the former Republic Steel Works, Birmingham, Alabama. This historically significant facility is developing as an environment where artists of varied disciplines are restoring the buildings of Republic Steel to serve as studio space. My studio consists of the former coal testing lab and an adjacent rail car shed, that which was fully restored during the summer of 1996. Construction of a metal casting furnace, glass-casting furnace, burnout oven, annealing and casting ovens using primarily discarded materials and implements from institutional auctions.
