California-based art fabricator Carlson & Co. is known for producing large-scale sculptures such as Jeff Koons’s giant, $20-million, stainless-steel “Balloon Dog” series. The company announced it is closing due to the recession-weary contemporary-art market.

Founded in 1971, Carlson & Co. became a resource for artists seeking to produce complicated, large-scale and frequently costly artworks.
