Sundie says: An assignment. A ceiling tile. A turkey.
A business. Creative businesses start in creative ways. Vintage Sculpture started with my husband, Brad, and I in 2000 with an assignment from our son Tucker's 2nd grade teacher.
Tucker came home with a Thanksgiving assignment to make a turkey as a family. He decided he wanted to make his bird out of the vintage ceiling tin we were making into boxes and selling at our local farmers market.So our family worked together to make a ceiling-tile gobbler. He turned in his turkey and came home with an A and five orders from teachers
and parents for more!
That turkey has led us down many roads. We love our crazy life of creating and selling the art we fashion out of cast-off and vintage materials, the truest form of recycling! We relish the fact that we get to do what we love everyday and it supports our passion of collecting and us!
We find inspiration everywhere, from the piece of metal the kids pick up while walking down the street to stopping at little hole-in-the-wall joints to search out vintage treasures in antique stores and flea markets to being inspired by fine art museums.
