I'm inspired by the unique authenticity of midcentury design expressed in everyday items, like cars, motorcycles, furniture and accessories.

Every item in Fishtail45 is unique, custom made, using reclaimed and re-purposed materials that I have been collecting for many years. It’s a mix of different time eras' industrial items made with special attention to details.
