Frankie Flood has been innovating and exploring the realms of design, metalworking, sculpture and architecture since childhood, when his father would spend long hours coaching his children’s creativity of construction. At thirty-six years old, Frankie is a tenured professor at the UWM Peck School of the Arts.
One of his greatest joys is assisting students in not only creating what they have envisioned– but inspiring them to think of solutions, both technical and conceptual. Frankie’s stamina as an artist matches his proficient technical abilities within the machine shop and on the computer. He is well-known for his motorcycle-inspired pizza cutters, and his intricate use of industrial design on his fully functional art objects. He collaborates consistently with his students and colleagues in order to turn plans and sketches into ever-lasting objects that have unmatched style and quality.
