Announcement   What is going on, y'all? You've been led here by your insatiable curiosity for undiscovered beauty and handcrafted design. And maybe a smashed electric guitar.

Please take a look around and visit as often as you like. I love answering questions and explaining my processes. I am always on the lookout for an intrepid client willing to expand their imagination and create a truly custom built installation. I salivate at the possibilities.

Sculptures are handmade in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

My MINIATURE guitar sculptures are cool, unique decor pieces. Constructed from actual scale replicas of real and, in some cases, historical instruments, my miniature guitar sculptures incorporate the physical and spiritual ideals that exist in my full size art pieces. Each sculpture is crafted upon a steel rod frame to a hand-stained oak and maple pedestal or to a polished plexiglass cage. I also use crucifixion nails, giraffe's ribs, and other memento mori as part of my work.

For details regarding FULL SIZE sculpture, please see each sculpture's page.

Custom sculptures, both FULL SIZE and MINIATURE, are available.

Upon reception of payment, each sculpture is carefully packaged and mailed via USPS, UPS or FedEx. I will provide you with all tracking information.

FULL SIZE sculptures and paper sculptures require a little more logistical information, but nothing out of the ordinary. They're just much bigger and heavier than the MINIATURES and need some extra care.

Enjoy the gallery and stay in touch.

This is the finished and mounted piece with Chris Blake Chappell in Rancho Mirage, California in my office. Chris, by the way, live in New York City. When the item was shipped it was slightly damaged by the handler. Chris hopped on a plane and came to my office to not only make repairs but to even improve the piece by painting the backing board to match my walls. It really made the piece seem to float and added to the effect Chris was trying to achieve in the first place. My wife and I have collected a fair amount of art and only twice have we met artists going to the efforts to make sure that we were satisfied but also to make personalized efforts to make sure that the piece showed in the best manner possible by adapting it to the placement. We are very satisfied with Chris and his art. His passion for his art is awesome.

This guy is awesome. Great sticker, everyone loves this thing. I'd buy anything from him again, one of the best purchases I've made.
