Boris Kramer

“I am a sculptor. I heat and form metal until it emulates expressions of human relationships. When heated, metal is very forgiving, which is why I choose it as a medium. Through art, I explore humanity.  In particular, the ways in which we are drawn together."

Boris Kramer was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1969. His father, Richard Kramer, was an artist and blacksmith. Boris first learned about metal and art through his father. After completing post graduate studies in Fine Arts and Renaissance History, he committed his future to art. For Boris, art must touch not just the mind but also the heart. Each sculpture is hand formed, using methods in both modern and ancient blacksmithing. 

No two pieces are alike. Sizes range from 10 inches to monumental. Special requests are welcome, such as specific configurations of family, or an addition to your existing family sculpture.

Boris Kramer makes works of art that generate an emotional response.  Whether indoor or outdoor, they continue to make an impact in private and corporate settings. ​
