In an earlier life, Steve (aka Stevo) Cambronne worked as a telephone repairman — then as a ski instructor in Colorado.

While browsing one day in a Denver bookstore, Cambronne discovered a book about Alexander Calder, the American sculptor. And he had aha moment.

Inspired by Calder’s colorful, abstract work, Cambronne and Beverly (now his wife and partner in art) started making metal jewelry and sculpture.

The self-taught artists later moved to Hiawassee, GA, where Beverly’s parents had a home, before settling in Marietta.

Now 58, the longtime metal artist remains enthusiastic about his one-of-a-kind pieces, which include clocks, plus bar and kitchen art.

A while back, Cambronne added tiki art (Shag art fans?) to his retro-modern collection.

With its midcentury style, the lightweight, multidimensional wall art has become a hit at art festivals and at modernism shows, such as those in Palm Springs and Denver.

Prices range from $350 to $500. Check Stevotomic.com or call his at 770-971-5633.

P.S. Consider springing for a new clock when daylight saving time ends Nov. 4.
