Jack Wilson Sculpture: Art Gallery and Studio
Jack Wilson’s pieces are personalized creations for people seeking distinct sculpture and metal work. Customized items include: fences, screens, handrails and gates, moving sculptures such as hanging mobiles, and outdoor garden fountains and stabiles. Originally inspired by Alexander Calder and Samuel Yellin, Jack often helps customers with their requests for creations in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright.
For 25 years the studio at 19 S. St Clair Street has been a small business cornerstone in the Toledo Warehouse District, a popular spot for downtown visitors enjoying sports, dining and other events.
The studio’s mural of Moses Fleetwood Walker has become a well-known downtown Toledo image.
