Flight of Imagination

Whether it lands in the hands of the person manning the cockpit of your company or the handyman or woman who always knows how to keep your household running, Brian Mock's industrial paperweight provides a clever way to show how much you appreciate everything they do. Recycled spark plugs, butter knives, nut and bolts are welded together into the iconic shape of an airplane, giving this delightful mini-sculpture the power to take off with the conversation as it taxis around your desk, workshop or tool shed. Handmade in Beaverton, Oregon.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

From his workspace in Portland, OR, where discarded materials emerge as works of inspired art, Brian Mock weaves his industrial magic to the delight of all around him. Of course, it's not really anything supernatural that allows Mock to create what many have dubbed as metalic masterpieces, but a commitment to precision and detail on every one of his creations. The end result is something to behold, a means of finding beauty where you might least expect it. Mock begins by sketching out a rudimentary design, or framework for what's to come, then measures each part to ensure a perfect fit, both aesthetically and practically.

It was the perfect gift!

By

Comments about UncommonGoods Spark Plug Plane Paperweight:

I ordered this item for my dad for his birthday. He is impossible to buy for and so as I searched the internet for something unique, I came upon this spark plug airplane. My dad loves cars, he works on them, and he's built his own remote-controlled airplanes! The quality of the item is great. It's quirky and handmade but sturdy and weighty. It was a hit!

          Was Disappointed that the plane was so small, and I felt it was over priced. Even the recipient laughed when he opened it. Made me sad that he thought it a silly gift.

              Got this as a birthday gift for my dad. It's made out of auto parts and upcycled metal products. It's small enough to sit on a desk, but hefty enough to double as a paperweight. Fun, unconventional product that's also functional.
