Repurposed Arts-001

Posted on Jan 2, 2014 in Blog


This is the first of a new series I am calling Repurposed Arts.  Like many others, I like to hunt down old designs in junk stores or old tools, document them, and archive these little gems for the future.  I have always been an image collector saving jpgs from the net or saving printed scraps and have thought of it much like DJ’ing digging for samples from old records.  You find that rare little piece of heaven and want to squirrel that sucker away for just the right time or next project.  This badge was found on an old cast iron tool when I was junking with my good friend David.  I love it.  I love the strength and simplicity of the mark and that killer S in Craftsman.
