When Steven Shaver swung by a San Jose salvage yard to grab a sun visor for his car, he never anticipated to pick up a new life's calling in the process. A graduate of San Diego State University, with a B.A. in International Business, Shaver owes his now very successful company and obsession with "found art," to that faithful trip in 1996. Since then, Shaver's work has been featured in everything from car shows to TV auctions, with celebrity clients and motor execs racing to get a piece of the car-part action. It's obvious from the time and care Shaver puts into his creations that he's in love with what he does, breathing new life into what others would simply discard. Above all, Shaver hopes his works will make a lasting impression on recipients all over the world, while helping to preserve the planet, "one part at a time."
Part Art, All Inspiration
Make good time with an industrial clock repurposed from an engine timing gear and chains. What once kept four wheels spinning takes a turn for the interesting--and the artful--with artist Steven Shaver's vision. Inspired by domestic car parts half-buried in junk yards that looked to Shaver like sculpture with a story, he began crafting creatively designed home decor from salvaged gears, chains, and more, for art and conversation. Shaver calls it "part art." We say it's part art, part clock--and all inspiration. Clock features part numbers cast in the metal and industrial details unique to each piece. Handmade in California.
