Orchard-Inspired Mobile

Here’s a mobile we’re creating for an affordable housing development right here in Portland. The location of the housing development has a rich history—it used to be orchard fields of apple trees, hazelnut trees, peach trees, and hops, so we incorporated those four different types of leaves into the design. The final piece will hang 10 feet tall by 8 feet in diameter, and the branches and leaves will be powder-coated aluminum. We’re eager to see it come together!

Dophin Wall Features

Here are renderings of two wall sculptures we’re creating for a hospital in Florida. Each wall sculpture will measure 12 feet long by 4 feet tall, featuring pods of cheerful, colorful dolphins, designed to create a natural path of motion to help flow patients. This should come together relatively quickly, so stay tuned for updates!

Kansas High School Pre-Fab Mobiles

We’re making a series of Pre-Fab mobiles for a high school in Kansas, including a really large Pre-Fab Mobile 2. Matt is 5’11” and that ladder is 20 feet tall, which gives you a sense of the mobile’s size. Stay tuned for updates!

Frank Lloyd Wright-Inspired Mobile Update

This Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired hanging mobile is finished and ready to ship to its owner in Maryland! The cluttered background of our shop kind of detracts from the mobile—but we’re thrilled that this design challenge resulted in such a fun piece.

And for even even more behind-the-scenes peek, here are a few pictures we’re sending the client to help with assembly and installation. (We won’t bore you with the ten-minute assembly instruction video we made.)

Unfair Advantage

Matt’s son recently participated in a pinewood derby. His car wasn’t the fastest, but thanks to a shop full of tools and a perfectionist father, it WAS the most beautiful.
