I have a very well equipped fabrication shop in Oakland and would be more than happy to discuss your needs and desires, and help your ideas become a reality in steel. I specialize in designing and building artistic and sculptural work, but also have extensive experience creating architectural elements, furniture and props for theater, video and special events. Thanks for reading and don't hesitate to call for a quote!

I had the pleasure in the spring of 2013 of doing a major interior architectural design, build and installation for tech startup AdRoll in the heart of San Francisco's SOMA district. Partnering up with Joe Chambers Art & Design, we spent months working with the client to create unique panel railing for their mezzanine and rebuild an entire spiral staircase. Accented with laser cut gears, each perforated steel panel received a gun blue finish and was capped off with beautiful stained ash wood railing. Have a look at the photos, we can do something similar for your home or business.

Summer 2012 dropped a very fun project in my lap- a commission to build the Squid Car! Over a 2001 F150 pickup truck we have built a Cephalopod Hot Rod, or Kraken if you will. Lots of curving steel, gullwing doors, sumptuous upholstery and a powerful sound and lighting system to boot! Have a look see at these in progress photos.

Just launched the new "Moto-Furniture" series at Bay Area Maker Faire 2011, and we walked home with a Blue Ribbon. Woohoo!. Check in with www.motofurniture.com for inquiries and more information.

Back in November 2010 I completed a major 2 part public art installation in the City of Goodyear, Arizona in November for my client Marta Thoma. Serving as project manager and crew leader was an exciting and satisfying challenge. Our excellent team of fabricators made it go quickly and funly- Matthew Monico, Evan Tracy, and Jason "G" Gronlund. Onward and upward!

You'll find on this page photos of some of the many things I've built over the years as a metal artist and professional fabricator over the years. Seen here is mainly the larger sculptural artwork I've done, but I've most certainly built an endless variety of more conventional functional and structural items such as furniture, a kiosk display for the Walnut Creek Wildlife Museum, Art Deco ornamentation for the Alameda Theater restoration, ornamental security fences and gateways, stainless steel hand rails, medieval style doors, green tech alternative energy devices and infrastructure, signage for restaurants and design firms, and even detail work on a massive 1920 steam tractor. The archive continues to grow, and will include shots of more of these items soon.
