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.

This product was a great gift for my father's birthday this year. He is a retired National Guard Shop Chief and this seemed a perfect gift for the man who already has everything. Because it is made out of actual real world pieces, no two are exactly alike, which is what drew me to this! He really liked the gift, commenting on how he has seen them before, and always wanted one. The only con would be that it is pretty expensive for the size. But it was a perfect gift!

Also, other reviewers commented on missing the back 'wheel,' but if you look at the image, it was received with this one.

Got this as a gift for a colleague I work with (a physician). Was shocked at how small it was and how poorly it was constructed. It looked like my kindergarten daughter made it. Would have been embarrassed to give it to anyone let alone another doctor.

        This is a gift that is meant to be sentimental and a conversation piece. It will most likely be on a desk as a paperweight or on a shelf. A great first piece to a collection to start!

                          My husband loved this gift-took it to work to display on his desk. He is an aircraft mechanic and is also working towards his private pilot license so it was the perfect "just because" gift.
