About the Artist
My wife, Paige, and I founded the company Nomad World Products in 2011 which specializes in one-of-a-kind furniture and lighting made from architectural and industrial salvage. Today we travel the world sourcing unique materials for the "Artifacts" line. Fixated on the American Machine Age and the advent of electric lighting, we convert 19th century machines and scientific instruments into utilitarian sculptures. Pairing actual objects from the 1800’s with lighting technologies that are exact reproductions of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla’s original inventions of the incandescent bulb and alternating current. Each piece tells the story of an innovative past that birthed modern American industry. These objects have been re-discovered, re-worked, and re-imagined to bring renewed function to a past generation of machines. Lives and works in Springfield, MO.
