Cassandra Gooding has been an architectural designer, mechanical designer, machinist, project manager and general contractor. In 1997 she moved from Ithaca New York to Durham North Carolina where she grew as an architectural designer into being an artist. As a full time artist her work includes uniquely cast bronze, aluminum and cast iron ART + FUNCTION items and some small batch production pieces. Her cast pieces can be stand alone works of art or items that are incorporated into a wood or fabricated metal design.
