Details and availability

Toolbarrow is my concept of a cabinet of curiosities intended for the modern day craftsperson. Over the years I’ve sought out specific tools from various people and places, most of which are so antiquated that their use is now mysterious and almost entirely lost on my generation. Referencing the craftsperson’s traditional hand-made toolbox and the wheelbarrow, a typically unappreciated yet time-tested workhorse of construction, this sculpture provides an alternative design by integrating the unconventional and flashy “bling” associated with contemporary custom car culture. Though eccentrically made of ornamentally patterned curly maple and a 100 brass spoked low-rider wheel with a coopered wooden rim, Toolbarrow is as oddly functional as the tool collection it contains.
