“I try to design items that I would want in my own home or office. I think about things I'd love to have that don't exist and try to breathe life into those concepts.”

Eric Gross grew up on a small family farm, where there always seemed to be some piece of equipment in need of maintenance or repair. He developed the basic skills of metal working from his father and grandfather, spending countless hours in their old white barn, watching them work.

Eric chose to study mechanical engineering in college, hoping to put his knowledge of materials and machinery to good use. He eventually grew bored of designing widgets and decided to use his metalworking skills and equipment to create original, whimsical, and functional items for the home.

      Comments about TENTACLE ATTACK BOOKENDS:

      Very sturdy, well made book ends. It looks great on our book shelves. It goes great with our nautical themed family room. No real issues, It did have a very strong paint smell for the first few days, but that's proof it wasn't just sitting around in some warehouse. Nice piece, very satisfied.

      Comments about TENTACLE ATTACK BOOKENDS:

      We were looking for unique bookends. The office is for a writer who loves to read. Something strong enough to hold books in place and add an element of imagination. It's a little something that has enchanted everyone who noticed it on the book shelf.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was prompt. Outside box was badly damaged, but inside, a well protected and packed shelf was in pristine condition.

        Comments about TENTACLE ATTACK BOOKENDS:

        We have a small collection of unique bookends, and had to add this one to the collection as soon as we saw it. The bookends are heavier than we were led to believe by other reviews. The bookends are beautifully made, and, are best used with a few books between each one, or the illusion of the woman's being caught by a giant octopus could be lost. Actually, we purchased all four sets of bookends offered by the artist. This set is strange, but what fun!

              I love books, but have not loved bookends that much until I saw these. Had to have them and love how they look and they hold my books securely, too.
