Lost Horizons of the Mojave

Artist Statement

Lost Horizons is a series of photo collages based on roadside images shot while traveling the backroads of the Mojave Desert between Palm Springs and Las Vegas.  Infinite vistas of sand and mountains.  Decaying ruins.  Miles of Jurassic Joshua Tree forests.  Trains heading east and west so long they slide into infinity.  Desert life hides everywhere in plain sight, gulping the scant moisture brought in with the cool nights, displaying a spurt of life and growth either side of the hot months.  The long summer days when life enters a state of suspended animation, coming alive at dusk, disappearing with the first hot rays of morning sunlight.

Cactus Lighting 

romantic garden lighting

cactusLanterns are crafted from discarded propane tanks that are used for target practice.  A combination of upcycling and Industrial Modern chic, these unique, garden and patio limited edition lanterns, wall lights, and garden light covers will cast a beautiful, soft pattern of light in your garden.

chollaBowls 

Organic Sculpture for Home and Garden

The chollaBowl’s raw, abstract geometric forms and rough textures are reminiscent of the 50’s-60’s Brutalist design movement.  Great for the garden or indoor.  Pick from our stock or custom order to fit a specific space and environment.

Temple Chimes

Giant one of a kind wind chimes made with scavenged shot metal propane tanks, steel, copper and aluminum tubing, and found objects that are suspended off sun dried Tamarisk, Manzanita, Smoke Tree and other California Native Woods.  Every Temple Chime is handmade and one-of-a-kind.  Feel free to shoot us an email if you want your Temple Chime customized.
