Vintage Style and Quality

I've always said that my dream job is making things for people. I didn't have any idea what those things would be. A long love for all things vintage started with classic cars and ended up somewhere in the the warm glow of vintage signs.

In this fast paced world of plastic and mass production, I try to pay homage to the artists of days gone by. Today signs are mostly printed out from a computer and stuck on a surface. I slow things down a little and take the time to do it right. Most signs built then still will light up today. I build a piece to last so that maybe one day someone can discover it rusting away 80 years from now.

Confucious said "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." If this is true, I hope "retire" soon while bringing back a little artistry and Made-In-America quality to a modern industry.

    I've been taking apart things since I was little... and sometimes putting them back together. If I'm not designing and building something with my hands, I feel like something is missing in life.

Welcome to my shop. I make metal art inspired by days gone by. Before the days of computers, craftsmen and artists designed and made everything by hand. In an attempt to honor these men and the good ol' days, I make my art from quality materials and do everything by hand. The saying - "They don't make them like they used to" - isn't always true.
