It is at this time of year that we see Christmas trees in many places; in our homes, places of work, shopping centers, and parks are just a few that come to mind. While visiting Mickey Davis, a local artist, a thought popped into my head: I should have a Christmas Tree in a place where I work – my basement workshop.
Mickey creates eclectic art by using anything which sparks his interest. This could be discarded lumber found at a demolition site, an item from an architectural antique dealer, or he may simply see a unique item by the side of the road. His studio is home to a wide variety of things which form the basis for the art he creates. Christmas trees are popular right now and Mickey has supplied a number of them to clients, some of whom have come back for a second tree.
I think mine looks great and is perfect for a woodshop. Add in fact that I have a growing interest in architectural antique items, my Christmas tree is all the more appropriate.
Mickey is very active in the local art community, but it has been only recently that he has begun offering his art for sale. He has had some success and I suspect he will continue to be successful in the coming year. You can find more of Mickey’s work at his Facebook page: Mason & Finch.
