The Red Dragon 2008     $ 9,500 open bid                                   Click on picture to see detail, and airbrush detail
is approximately 90" tall and made from 1/8" thick steel plate cut into individual scales, primed with galvacon rust protection,
then airbrushed with laquer and clearcoated.  it almost appears to be made of plastic, but that is because it has been polished
prior to multiple coats of color.  
the dragon weighs about 400 pounds and can be easily moved on or off this post with a hidden eyelet in one of the top head
scales.  it can be crated and shipped easily with no fear of damage and then lifted again onto another post.  3 men can carry it,
or it can be moved with a forklift.
we designed it to climb a post and still fit inside a building to be used as a menu display item for commercial use...in addition to
where it currently sits on top this gate post.

our next dragon is to be a walking Chinese dragon and is currently scheduled for production this spring.
we will gladly make any style dragon you wish, and any size...cost proportionate to size and additional detail requested.
fabrication process pics available upon
request.  we started with the head, hands,
and backbone to support the weight, then
built solid scales to form the body.   the
fingers alone are capable of supporting the
entire weight.
The Hourglass  2003
This art in public places donation project is approximately 12 feet tall, made of 1-1/4" std pipe, 1/4" rod, and 1/4" formed plate.
We shipped it to a school, and the students were to complete the installation the following year with a ceramic inner structure
and lighting.   
Our first dragon 1992
Specialty Towers 2003 for "Roy Toms Plaza" in Colfax for the Railroad exhibit park
built for the City Founders Day Celebration.
Each tower has a 6" diameter by 36" bell chime built into the structure so people can
sit on the incorporated bench design and ring the bell...which sounds like the old
fashioned railroad engine bell.    
This type of trellis is free standing and used to enhance shrubs, vines, or topiaries.  they can be used with potted plants on
patios or decks.
Send us a picture you would like translated into a landscape, or suggest a geometric pattern.  fax us a sketch, or email a pic.
These trellises can be folded in half and shipped anywhere.
They are heavy duty and not flimsy like most,  we can make them lighter and more delicate if you like, just ask.

A lot of our best work escapes without pictures getting taken  for one reason or
another, perhaps its the excitement of getting it done and installing it, then realizing
it is impossible to get a decent picture once things leave the shop

years in a row before we redesigned a newer model that beat it.
