Taking a Trip and Feeling Color (or absence of color)

Jim took a trip to North Dakota to visit family and was inspired by his brother Darren's powder coating operation. Color was applied to tanks, car parts, stairways and small parts in a glossy finish that reminded Jim of the J Schatz line. So much in fact that we decided to make it part of our process and evolve our classic designs. The results stunned us. Life is a wonder and we never know where we will end up.Take a moment to experience these new additions to our line. Some are brand new, and others are an evolution of our designs. Our classic bird feeders and house have progressed with the addition (or absence) of color. Experience our new 3 Footed Planters, Cilindro Vases, Out of Shape Vases...

Feeling like we just got back from a dig

The A17-1 Desk Lamp looks as if it were dug from an ancient architectural ruin. We created the original years ago and had a difficult time producing it from the mold we made. It is a very complex object to successfully caste, dry and fire. Our efforts paid off. The result is a modern artifact. We finished the lamp in a gorgeous metallic lava glaze and fitted it with a long-life led bulb. The process challenged us and we are proud to have persisted in our efforts. We hope you appreciate the finished product as much as we do. View the A17-1 Desk Lamp here: J Schatz A17-1 Desk Lamp
