created by

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.

Cool, but very tiny. Pay attention to the size, I didn't.


this couldn't have cost more than two or three dollars to make.



Made very well!


My husband is a craftsman too, and admired how straight and square the plane is. He said tack welding like this is not easy.

This sculpture is so RAD! It's a unique and whimsical gift


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!
