About

SteelGoatStudio offers a wide and fascinating range of wonderful objets d’art, primitive folk art and iconic cultural pieces, many of which I have collected in my travels to many other countries.

Almost at the beginning of my traveling life as a museum professional, I became captivated with the shrines found in so many cultures. I began studying the reasons and objects that people incorporate into the receptacles of sacred relics and remembrances and the methods they use when making them.

Almost at the beginning of my traveling life as a museum professional, I became captivated with the shrines found in so many cultures. I began studying the reasons and objects that people incorporate into the receptacles of sacred relics and remembrances and the methods they use when making them. I really love and admire the idea of creating honorable or sacred places within a container where homage is paid to someone or something of significance.

Many years of creating artistic shrines have commenced. Along with the artifacts I have collected, I use a multitude of found receptacles including wine crates, cigar boxes, orange crates, and even cardboard boxes as the vessels for these assemblages. I strive to achieve depth and texture by using a variety of techniques and materials: as wide ranging as historical stencils, rusty found objects, old book pages, vintage and period wallpaper, and whimsical recycled pieces, all composed in a robust palette with a contemporary slant.

I also offer pieces in their original form in the shop, alongside the pieces I personally create. After years of enjoying many of the artifacts, I have included them in this shop to share with those of you who also appreciate fine hand-crafted, culturally rich pieces.
