He designs and creates his furniture in the Los Angeles Arts District with the help of his faithful companion, Dr. Watson. The pieces are made with wood from 1920’s factories, 90-year-old grape crates and other repurposed materials.I especially love this Shadowbox Table, where I could show off some of my WWII aviation items. My Dad’s service in the Army Air Corps inspired my collection and it would be great to see the aviator goggles, leather fighter pilot’s cap, and colorful post cards on view every day. Michael Graham says he uses the table he built for himself to display books and hide the TV remote from Dr. watson.
His most stunning design may be this industrial floor lamp made out of wine barrel rings , a vintage surveyor’s tripod and an Edison style LED bulb. Enjoy browsing.

Sure, you can go to a big-box store and buy a mass-produced planter for a song. We think there’s a lot more satisfaction in buying an artisan-made, all-American item.

He’s a ceramic artist who creates the shapes; she’s a painter who creates the colorful designs.
The colors, in this case, were inspired by the landscape of the West Coast. Each planter is slip-cast in durable stoneware.
