Chris Plaisted

New Milford, CT

Chris Plaisted was born in a tiny NH town surrounded by artists, including his family, many painters, and a neighbor who was a welder and woodcarver, which he seized the opportunity to learn. He is an emerging artist drawn to travel, architecture, cities, and water. He works primarily as a sculptor with a studio and workshop near the lake in New Milford, CT, with trains, planes, boats, and NYC close at hand.

His sculptures evoke emotions drawn from his experiences traveling and observing the world. They are mainly welded steel constructions, but he also uses copper, wood, concrete, and other metals. The work is primarily abstract but often includes figurative elements. It has appeared in dozens of large-scale outdoor shows nationwide and in galleries.

Christopher resides in New Milford, CT, with his wife, two children, and Leonidas, the dragon.
