Elijah S. Secrest

Aerarius Metalworks

Eli is a Columbus artist, working in metals, fabric, glass or whatever material is needed to create his vision. A graduate of Fort Hayes High School, he split his time in vocational studies (welding) & the arts. He is currently a student at CCAD (Columbus College of Art and Design) where he is thriving. He is among the first students to pursue the major of Contemporary Crafts, which allows him to concentrate on the plastic arts, as well as learning what is needed to market his work. He is being challenged & supported by staff and fellow students, & this work is the result.
