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.

Comments about UncommonGoods Spark Plug Plane Paperweight:

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.

              I just received my little airplane today and it's so unique, creative and inventive! I normally don't write a lot of reviews but couldn't pass this up. I purchased this for my husband which is normally more of a lover of corporate jets however this little guy was so unique that I couldn't pass it up as a gift for him this year. My husband started his career as a car mechanic, attended aviation college & then became certified as an airplane mechanic. Today he's moved on from being a paid mechanic but still works in aviation and helps anyone he can with auto repairs. His passion for airplanes and mechanical work continue to this day. Rest assured I know he will absolutely love this gift! Yes, it's small little guy but the creativity put into this piece is art and makes up for the size. I'm looking forward to seeing more works of art like this by Brian in the future!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Spark Plug Plane Paperweight:

              I ordered this item for my dad for his birthday. He is impossible to buy for and so as I searched the internet for something unique, I came upon this spark plug airplane. My dad loves cars, he works on them, and he's built his own remote-controlled airplanes! The quality of the item is great. It's quirky and handmade but sturdy and weighty. It was a hit!
