Commissioned Work & Restorations

 One of our first commissions was to design a pool table light for the Steampunk themed brewery, Clockwerks Brewing, in Minneapolis MN (see right). Now, several custom lighting pieces from ISD may be found throughout the brewery. Since that time, we have designed and installed custom works for other restaurants and private residences, most recently Fletcher's Ice Cream in Minneapolis, MN and Victoria Burrow in Victoria, MN.  


 

In addition to our assemblage artworks, we also provide 

restoration services for your treasured pieces.

About The Artist

I have had a fasination with the Victorian Era and Industrial Revolution since my first visits to the Science Museum of London as a child and finding  myself drawn into the power of the great steam engines and the magical properties of early electrical devices. This probably had a large part in my going into a career in industrial process controls and machinery. During my career, I have traveled to factories around the world and witnessed the decommissioning of the magnificent brass gauges and geared machinery of the Industrial Age. To save some of this history from the landfills and celebrate the era, my wife and I created Industrial Steamworks Designs where we take vintage and antique elements from bygone eras and build them into pieces of art that complement home and business alike. We initially focused on industrial pieces but now enjoy creaing works from vintage home, marine, and farm equipment as well. 

I hope you enjoy our creations as we bring elements from the past to new life through art.
