I love my double hanging oil votive lamp set - It looks gorgeous on our sunporch. And I appreciate your patience in answering my many questions to help me decide what to get. Thank you so very much for a unique product.
From Designer to ... Designer
Located on the edge of the historic Dunes in Oceano, California, I opened an Industrial Design consultancy in this shop in 1989. I specialized in helping small firms and individuals develop their product ideas into viable consumer products.
Part of that process involved the fabrication of models and engineering prototypes using machine tools, hand tools, various materials and manufacturing processes. Designing for others paid the bills for eighteen years. But frankly, I burned out. I love being outdoors so I learned to operate heavy equipment; a complete 180 from working in an office. Satisfying my ongoing need to "make", this shop, and etsy, are a natural outlet for my art ... and the art of my friends.
You didn't think I could do all of this alone did you? Watch for other bios here soon. Once we get everyone involved with the shop lined up we'll publish their stories!
The recent installation of a large kiln should start to show results very soon. Glass and ceramics to augment steel will be fun. We're excited!
We hope you enjoy our work.
