“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.
