Modernist Mirror

Item #207 – $500

Local Pickup Only

We let the design develop through the constraints of the material on-hand. Framed around a salvaged mirror these dowels, and geometric wood scraps led us to a design inspired by Paul Klee, the mid-century modernist artist. The geometry, the play of negative space, and the simple color palette create a truly unique handmade mirror.

Pallet Row Mirror

 

Item #245 – $350

Local Pickup Only

This large mirror and frame were carefully recovered from an abandoned synagogue 15 minutes north of downtown Detroit. After saving the mirror we sealed in the layers of paint with an adhesive clear coat. Then we mounted pieces of quilted and curly maple hand-cut from an old shipping pallet in a staggered pattern across the mirror. Finally we used old bolt hooks and a reclaimed chain for mounting.

Junction Light

 Junction Light

Item #173 – SOLD

Some friends of ours recently bought an abandoned restaurant in North Detroit and gave us a call to come and go through it with them. While making our way through the basement we came across a whole assortment of goods and discovered that the restaurant must have been a hardware store at one point. Among the pile of goods we found this old junction box and decided that it would make a really cool table lamp. So we grabbed some scrap reclaimed wood and began designing, cutting, drilling, and constructing this industrial style light. Complete with a vintage wood finish and cord flip switch this lamp is good to go functionally and aesthetically.
