I'm not a fan of the term "maker" - so I just say I'm a guy who makes stuff. Some of that stuff is shown below, and a lot of it is based around old wood. I've always loved the patina of old framing lumber - the deep browns of the wood's oxidation, the lathe lines, the saw marks, the nail holes, the wear and blemishes from years of existence. I love it - I could look at it all day. I think it's crazy that wood with so much natural beauty and character just gets thrown out in the trash. Well, I pull it out of dumpsters and make stuff out of it in my driveway.
The frames below are hand made by Tom Gazda. All wood is salvaged out of dumpsters in Albany NY by me. The glass is salvaged from old storms windows and yard sale picture frames.
While I didn't build the wooden screenprinting frames below, I did make painted glass whiteboards out of them. The glass is salvaged from old triple track storm windows; the backing cardboard salvaged from the neighborhood recycling night.
OK, nothing old or salvaged below. T-shirts designed and printed by me. Currently for sale on Etsy. Link to my Etsy Store.
