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.
