Founder and woodworker, Brett Eichmann, dreamt of creating a space within the community for post-graduate artists and thus, Lagomm Studios was born.
In 2015, Brett Eichmann founded Lagomm Studios as a way to provide resources and space for emerging, local artists. Seeing a disconnect between talented young artists and local opportunities, he acquired a warehouse. Lagomm houses five working artists, including a painter, photographer, textile artist, woodworker and sculptor. There are individual studio spaces along with a shared woodworking and metalworking facility. As an artist himself, Brett’s current body of work focuses on growth; inspired from both the natural environment and human interaction. Although often simplistic, he creates impact through texture, color, negative space and shadows.

As a student studying at Arizona State University, and working as an artisan at Bollinger Atelier, Miguel has become adept at sculptural processes ranging from digital prototyping, molding, wax working, ceramic shell, casting, metal finishing, metal fabrication, polishing and the patination of metal finishing. He is a welder with extensive knowledge of structural, mild, stainless steel, aluminum and bronze metal properties. These technical skills have empowered his sculptural study at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, bringing my abilities to a new level far beyond that of student work. He has played a vital role at Bollinger Atelier, in creating monumental pieces for artist such as Tom Sachs, Tom Otterness, and Kiki Smith, and his favorite Louise Bourgeois to name a few.
