Sehr schönes und originelles Kunstwerk.
Quietly from a small single car garage comes Moerkey.
My work space is a small space in our garage which is jammed packed with bikes, camping gear, woodworking tools and timber and now numerous bits of old copper pipe, keys and pennies which are the raw materials from which I create these works of art.
I started making metal spheres from copper rings and then keys. Friends liked what I made, both the look and feel of the smooth spheres and suggested I start a shop so here it is.
It wouldn't have happened without the support and assistance of my wife and family or the encouragement from my neighbours.
Around the web
Hi, I've always dabbled in the creative side with woodworking, garden design and photography. Recently I have branched out into metal sculpturing using a variety of substances, the most unique being old recycled keys.
I make each item in my store individually from recycled and re-purposed materials. As a result of this, each item is unique, and there will be some slight variation in size, colour and weights from the listed description. Sourcing this material takes some time and this, along with my full time employment, will result in some absences from my shop but I will make every effort to keep you all informed.
Please enjoy these products but be careful as they will break or dent if dropped or miss-treated.
Accepted payment methods

I am currently not registered for GST (10%) in Australia and the prices reflect this.
International orders do not attract GST.
Once payment is confirmed every effort will be made to ship goods within the time frame listed when purchasing.
As most items are made to order this may take up to 2 weeks before ready for shipping.
Larger orders may require more time to create and I'll make every effort to liaise with the client and to fill these as soon as possible.
Reduced shipping in Australia on most items.
Prices for international postage are based on AIR mail . SEA mail will be cheaper but will take up to 3 months for delivery. Any customs or additional international shipping charges will be charged to the client.
For multiple items postage will be adjusted for the total weight and size of the package. Any over payment in shipping will be refunded to the purchaser.
Postage charges include insurance when required.

Refunds and Exchanges
If a package looks like it has been damaged in the post PLEASE take a number of photos before you unpack it as well as a photo of the damaged item. Forward the photos to me.
Damage goods will need to be returned, if a local repair can not be arranged, at the expense of the purchaser, and a replacement item will be sent upon confirmation of goods being returned. Change of mind will not be a valid reason for a refund.
Please be sure of your purchase as I will refund only for goods arriving in a damaged state unless a repair can be arranged. Items are hand made and a mixture of whole and parts of keys may be used in any item. Due to the artistic process there may be some uneven surfaces or edges, every attempt is made to minimise these.
For international deliveries if they arrive damaged, all attempts will be made to repair if possible.
If I am unable to supply the goods ordered a full refund, including shipping costs will be made.
Please convo me to discuss refunds/repairs if required.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the artistic process there may be some uneven surfaces or edges, every attempt is made to minimise these. Items may contain broken or damaged keys as well as whole keys.
A repair service is offered for dropped or damaged goods.
The surface treatment on bowls and balls is food safe but susceptible to alcohol. Clean with a dry soft cloth. If required wash in cold to warm water only, with a mild detergent. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners, scours or metal polish. Timber rings should only require a wipe over with a slightly damp cloth.
