The Seventh Motel

A recent commission piece turned out so rad. Love it so much, one of the biggest pieces we've made. Had a hard time getting a picture without reflections. "The Seventh Motel."
Installed right over her amazing couch (and dog!).
A couple of close ups of the various cameos.

Custom House Numbers Gone Good

I love custom pieces. Your ideas, new numbers, new shapes, new ideas make for some of the best moments.

Black on white - super striking. Super bold.
 This custom order used some of my most favorite numbers. Modern, yet tricky.
 This piece, really stretched my mind and my ability. Had to really think and work to make it happen - and wow - it really worked. One of my absolute favorite plaques I have ever built.
It's the size of a toddler, and has the presence of a bull at the running of the bulls. It really is amazing -- and owns everything!!

A batch of address plaques

Just a few of my favorite June plaques. I used to think that every plaque should be transparent - but the more I see the opaque colors the more I like. And then, when they get tricked out with a custom request, I like them even more. 

When I started making these plaques, in my mind it was always about modern or mid-century homes. I love when I get pictures of the plaques on every type/style of house - and they totally work. Just goes to show, gotta be open minded.

"Handjob" - "She's Handy" - "Multi-tasking" This piece has so many titles - we just can't decide.
And it's stacked on 3 colors of plexi - art from all angles.
 "1962 Black Velvet" Sleek black plexi on black frame -- our take on the black velvet paintings - collage style.

Yellow ... It's the New Everything

Without even realizing it, I have become addicted to yellow, and in particular, this color of yellow plexiglas. Every piece of art made, my immediate gut reaction,  "Let's assemble it on yellow." 

 And then the ultimate happened -- someone ordered a plaque -- on opaque YELLOW plexiglas.
It looks unbelievable -- and their house, will be noticed. In love.
