"Down with the Shine"

An ode to the vintage and rustic way of life, the way it should be.

Pecked this out this morning while thinking of my fellow humans across the world living in fear, peace and love to you all. May you and your families be safe.

My most recent piece is a bedframe inspired by Ulm Cathedral and the elm tree. The birds are based on the Ulmer Spatz. Itโ€™s queen-sized, made of steel, bronze, and wood (oak). There are outlets in the frame at either side of the head. Total weight ~160kg (350lbs). The project took around 350-400 hours of combined labor for design, construction, photography, and delivery/assembly.

Iโ€™m really proud of it! Thereโ€™s definitely a little bit of my soul (and blood, sweat, and tears) in this thing. Please pass it on if you like what you see.


Special thanks:
