About

Creative Sparks Studio

After spending my creative life focusing on painting and drawing and graphic design, a few years ago my interest turned to metal and welding. My shop is located in the half of our garage that I have taken over. It looks like any guys dream, except that I'm not a guy. As I explore welding I find that women are gravitating towards it more and more and I’m glad to see lines of clothing and gear being marketed to us and made specifically for us. My husband and I have been building up my metal studio over the past year now, building racks for steel stock and buying the tools needed to get the job done. Some day we plan on moving to acreage out in the hill county of Texas where I can make all of the noise and racket I want without having to worry about disturbing the neighbors, but for now I just have to be content with creating my metal work out of our garage here in a Houston subdivion.

My interest in welding started when I took a couple of class from Charlie Strack and then one from John Barber, both very talented Texas metal artists. I have a long career in art with a variety of disciplines and my goal is to incorporate various mediums along with steel into future pieces.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do making it and if you have something specific in mind that you would like created just for you please contact me.

    A couple of years ago I took a welding class and immediately loved it! Taking a solid piece of steel, shaping it and fusing it together with another solid piece of steel is such an organic experience! My style incorporates a lot of curves and twists.

Thank you so much for purchasing one of my pieces! I truly appreciate your business and am confident that you will be absolutely delighted when you receive your order.

I take great care and time when packaging items in order to ensure a safe delivery. However, things do happen in transit and I am happy to work with my customers to ensure that they end up with an item that they are happy with. So inspect your package immediately and report any damage within 24 hours of receiving (please see information under "Shipping Policy" to report a damaged deliver.

Returns and exchange details
I put a great deal of time, effort and care into all of my pieces and do everything I can to make my customers happy with their purchase. Steel has an odd way of reflecting its surroundings so colors are described to the best of ability; slight differences may occur between photo and written description. Returns not accepted for color interpretation discrepancy. If you have any questions at all pertaining to color, or size, weight, etc. please convo me PRIOR to placing your order. I am always happy to answer any questions or even provide additional photos.

If you are not happy with something that you have purchased just let me know and we can work something out to make us both happy. I will provide refunds but I ask that the buyer contacts me immediately upon delivery. I require buyer to pay return shipping and, since the item is one-of-a-kind and had been taken out of circulation by the purchase, a 30% re-stock fee may apply.

My pieces are solid steel but that does not guarantee that they are indestructible. If the item should ever need repair (ie. you dropped it down the stairs), I can usually fix it for a modest charge (with shipping at your expense).

Since each one of my piece is made by hand, they will have a unique look with their own character and imperfections, some may even continue to patina naturally with time. My goal is not to mimic something that came off a production line but actually look like a one-of-a-kind piece. Variations are not to be considered defects. I do my best to represent the details of each item in my photos.

Custom orders are non-returnable.
Shipping
IN ORDER TO REPORT A DAMAGED DELIVERY:

Damage claims must be reported within 24 hours of delivery.

If you receive your package and the box appears to be damaged in ANY way i.e dented, torn, etc., photograph the package PRIOR to breaking the seal and opening the box.

When you open the box, if packaging, such as bubble wrap, appears to be deflated, or contents severely shifted, or you feel that there may be potential damage to the contents for any reason (even if there were no signs of damage to the box itself), take photographs PRIOR to removing the contents.

When you unwrap your items, if you notice any damage take photos IMMEDIATELY and contact me.



GENERAL SHIPPING INFORMATION:

Please remember that shipping costs also include the costs for packaging supplies (e.g. bubble wrap, boxes, etc.), generally referred to as a "Handling" fee.

If you ordered multiple items I will combine shipping as best as I can.

Creative Sparks Metalworks is not responsible for stolen or damaged packages after delivery confirmation (i.e. you box was left on the front porch and the sprinkler system came on and soaked the package). If the package is insured you will be responsible for claiming the refund with the shipper (please ask ahead of time for insurance options).

Items offering FREE SHIPPING will be sent using the most economically priced method. If you need your item to arrive by a certain time I will offset the expedite shipping cost with the standard shipping rate.
