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 from spinning out of control, 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 a helicopter, giving this delightful mini-sculpture the power to take off with the conversation as it hovers around your desk, workshop, or toolshed. Handmade in Beaverton, Oregon.

Brian Mock

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. collection

    My brother in law loves this kind of thing. It is perfect for him - and very uncommon :). When the box came in the mail - the packaging said shipped from Brooklyn with love. So I had to text a friend who is in Brooklyn a photo. Love the company - love the products! I am and will continue to be a returning customer!

            This helicopter sculpture is great! I bought it for my dad for Father's Day and he just loved it. He's a mechanic, so he thought it was especially cool that it's made out of a sparkplug. He keeps it in his office to show off to his buddies. I highly recommend this cool little trinket for any gear-head you might know.

                  This was a great gift for my husband on our 10th, I figured the metal was close enough to aluminum to make it work. He really liked it and didn't mind the grease still on the recycled spark plug, while I had to fight the urge to clean it off! I'd give it 5 stars but for the grease and it would be a bit cooler if the propeller moved. Otherwise, a very unique gift made in OR!!

                    My husband is a writer and loves the history of airplanes, helicopters, blimps...anything that flies. This was perfect for his office. It was very substantial so I wasn't concerned that if it fell it would break.

                          My item arrived broken. I was disappointed because it was going to be a Xmas gift. Your customer service was very nice and credited my purchase back to my card in a timely manner.

                            This was the perfect add-on to a plain giftcard present. My father in-law loved it and it got passed around to everyone. The more you stare at it the more peices you find in the plane!
