Artisan Elephant Stands

Custom Order – SOLD

Found standing in the middle of an abandoned basement near Detroit’s Northend, these two elephants are a tremendous example of the cities rich art history.  This pair of beautifully detailed elephants are made from plaster by local artist Sam Pacini, who started crafting works of art in 1960. We carefully patched a couple holes and applied a diluted coat of grey paint to bring out the lines and details. Next we custom built two crates from reclaimed pine to rest on top of the elephants turning them into stunning and versatile works of art.

This shelf and lamp strikes a wonderful balance between beauty and function.
