Bob Campbell aka 'Stig' taught himself how to construct studly furniture from cast-off industrial parts. Stig makes his home in a region of England that was once home to heavy engineering and steel manufacturing.

Stig rejects traditional sales venues and retains tight control over his private gallery. Stig has attracted a hard-core following of his heavy-duty art furniture.
