“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.

Cute Sturdy Bookends

Very sturdy metal. Cute and useful. All the animal design bookends were great and it was hard to choose but since I think every home needs at least one elephant with the trunk up for good luck, I chose this one. A nice piece of art

I have not seen my daughters reaction as yet. But I'm confident she will love the bookends. We had looked around town for a set and never did find something "elephant" that she liked.

This was a gift for my daughter's 30th birthday! As she has gone through life, my advise has always been..."How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!" Perfect example with the Momma elephant leading the baby...love it!
