    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

    Not everyone loves email.  But we are avid emailers, and we love it when our customers send an email to let us know their Gatski piece arrived.

    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

    Right On Tools

    We were current in 1978.  The work itself may have seemed peculiar in that time, but our tooling would have fit right in. We have found ourselves as neither primitive nor cutting-edge (by any stretch), but somewhere happily in-between- right where it’s groovy. One of our most essential tools is our hand-held grinder. We keep four in operation, each one with

    Keeping Our Eyes Open

    Avoiding the Tree

    You know when you’re flying down a hill on your toboggan and you have to lean really hard to avoid hitting a tree, cornstalk, or whatnot? Then you right yourself and regain your point of balance only to do it all over again when the next obstacle arises? We’ve been doing that lately – well, not so much the sledding
