    A Creative Kickstart

    We have a secret. No, we’re not polka dancers, but good guess. Ready? Here it is: Making your Gatski is a lot easier when we know you. Don’t worry – we don’t need your weekly calendar, family tree, or FitBit report. But a few simple details can really help us create your piece; a bit about where you are, what

    Wouldn’t Have Thought of That!

    File this under We wouldn’t have thought of that! – the tree topper. We often prattle on about being open to your ideas (which we absolutely are), likely to the point where you’re going, “Ok, ok, we got it, Gatskis.” But we repeat it so often because, just with like our own ideas, we love seeing where they lead. And

    The Linchpin

    Trying is the linchpin in our design formula. Perhaps that makes it all seem a little simplistic. But truthfully, for us, it all boils down to trying things when creating new work. “Well, let’s try sketching that out.” “Why don’t we try making that bigger.” “We’ve wanted to try that for years now.” “Let’s just try it, and see how

    Shipping Adventures

    Shipping is always an adventure around here. I’m thinking some of the shipping services out there should sponsor a roller coaster. Maybe they could call it the Tracking Shocker or Shipmare. Recently, tracking one of our larger tables across the country to Las Vegas certainly felt like a wild — and scream-worth — ride. The tracking information showed the package

    Your Places

    Designing New Work (In Short)

    When you make your own design rules, there’s no telling where you’ll end up. You might find yourself discussing oversized cats and goats with sunglasses. And, that’s just the start. While you dismiss that goat idea, you do move forward with the cat. When you start into the cat, it actually resembles a tiger. So, you roll with the tiger.

    Heading Out!

    We owe much gratitude to a handful of galleries tucked in cities and towns across the country. These jewels showcase the work of handmade artisans. Art and craft shops have supported our work since our first year, about thirteen years ago. They are steadfast in bringing pieces like ours (made in the middle of nowhere) to their own main streets
