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!

Frequently asked questions

Shipping rates via usps and fedex

I try to ship priority/flat rate but for large/heavy items (within the USA to non PO addresses) fedex is usually more economical and I use them. Etsy only calculates via usps so please know I check, choose & refund overcharges if fedex is less. Know too that sometimes calculated shipping for combined items is 'off' and if so I will refund overcharges. Don't hesitate to ask what fedex rates are if you see something you really want but are aghast at estimates usps rates!

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.

IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT RETURNS:

For orders returned to me because you do not like/want the item or failed to read listing details / didn't get quantity you thought you would or notice flaws in photos I will refund you once I have received the order in the same package/condition less shipping of original order. You are responsible for shipping fees back to me with a tracking #.

For orders returned to me because of failure to pick up package or for any other reason such as incorrect address/outdated address etc, I will refund for the cost of the item less original shipping fee that you paid. I can resend the item to the correct address if you want to pay for shipping again.

Wholesale availability

Wholesale buyers please convo me if you would like to discuss a bulk order as I offer discounts on orders incrementally.
