About Jack Willoughby, Anvil Island Designs
Anvil Island Design, located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, is home to the studio and workshop of metal artist Jack Willoughby.
Willoughby is well-known in Canada and the US for his unique, humorous, whimsical designs using steel, aluminum, copper and iron.
In his twenties he worked as a high-steel ironworker. Willoughby can look around Vancouver and identify landmarks he had a hand building, such as the Pan Pacific Hotel, Science World and BC Place Stadium.
Recently, Jack has partnered with indigenous artist Noel Edward Brown to create a beautiful line of art with First Nations designs. Using everyday metal, he holds the power of transmuting something common into something precious.
