About

from found objects to functional art

I love giving useless junk a 2nd life. I get to feel like a kid every day as I walk around looking for objects that have flown off of vehicles, been tossed into dumpsters or dropped off at the scrap yard.

Found objects have a patina and a texture that is unique and intriguing. The unknown use or history of the objects is what excites me and commands my attention. It's like a game waiting to see what will fit with what and how to make it useful.

Art is my full time job. I go to scrap yards every week and poke thru heaps of metal. I walk and ride my bike around town to find auto parts on the roadside or odd things left out near dumpsters. Every day feels like an adventure as I never know what I will find or what I will make!

The majority of my waking hours are spent maintaining my etsy shops; finding materials to work with and making stuff . I have three etsy shops: PaulaArt, Industrial Bloom( found object flower shop) and Industrial Habitat (industrial supplies) so I am always working on several pieces at once.

I welcome commission and retail/ wholesale inquiries, just ask!

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

I stock up on old pipes so I can make several utensil holders for home/office use. Wholesale buyers please convo me if you would like to discuss a bulk order.

Care instructions

Keep in mind that just because many of my pieces are heavy metal, things can still break if dropped on the floor. I nut and bolt objects, epoxy them and weld. (even heat welded objects can break if hit just right) I take great care when shipping to protect your art through transit. I am not responsible for what happens to it after you get it! If a pet or child knocks something over and it crashes to the ground and breaks it does not reflect poor craftmanship on my end! Also, keep in mind that I am working with found materials that are aged and in many cases pretty rusted ~ if you leave them outside you can expect more rust over time due to humidity/wetness. If using indoors keep away from sink areas or where water is present.

More Care Info:

If over time you notice any rust forming that doesn't bode well with you, GENTLY sand the area and spray or brush on an oil based varnish/polyurethane. Heavily rusted pieces,kitchen & jewelry holders are usually painted and/or varnished twice.

Regarding unopened returned orders

For orders returned to me because of failure to pick up package due to not wanting to pay duty/custom taxes (if applicable) or for any other reason such as incorrect address etc, I will refund for the item less 15% and less shipping fee. If you have moved and failed to update your address please know if it gets returned I will reship if you want to repay for shipping; if not I will refund you for the cost of the item less the 15% restock and less original shipping cost.
