DENISE A. TUITE
President / Owner of Denise A. Tuite Custom Furnishings Denise A. Tuite started in the antique business in 1970 and spent the next 18 years creating her metal works on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, then moved to the Decoration and Design Building in New York. She is now creating custom metal work.
Denise’s career has focused on manufacturing metal furniture reproduction of the style exhibited according to the 18th century master artist Diego Giacometti (1902-1985) who lived in Switzerland.
Those familiar with his pastoral intensity of design and master constructs will immediately recognize the resemblance of her metal artwork to those Diego Giacometti created and his craftsmanship, workmanship, metal working, and use of architectural metals, are showcased especially in her pieces created from bronze.
Denise A. Tuite employs similar sensitivities and metals in her sculptures and fine furniture and design.
Denise’s custom metal work is a reproduction of the art pieces of Diego Giacometti from whom she gains her inspiration.
Even as a young boy, Diego Giacometti felt closer to nature than to people and his love of animals and for depicting them in his art became his life-long passion. He had great reverence for and believed that animals were spiritual and sacred.
His designs of fabrication custom metals, made from bronze and other metals for his clients included animals that held special significance to them. Bound by his eternal affinity and appreciation for nature and animals, Diego’s art was revered by the public, his contemporaries, and the gentry of the time.
The Picasso Museum commissioned him to create furniture and lighting for the hotel’s suite in Marais, France, and he also created custom design metals for the Chagall Museum in Nice, France.
Diego Giacometti was renowned and respected as an artist, poet-craftsman, and sculptor who incorporated function with charm in fabrication and welding for his custom metal designs.
