Design - Engineering & Prototyping

I’m not the only artist in the family. My dad, Curt Austin, designs the more technical machine-like Girders & Gears Collection. However, more than that, he is the one who runs our laser machine and engineers and prototypes every product. A considerable amount of time is spent in the developmental stages of drawing, evaluating designs and testing different options while considering materials, packaging, shipping, production, labor and more. Once pieces are fitted and approved, the laser is a master at duplicating them. It is important that our finished designs fit together perfectly, look fantastic and be of the highest quality before we even begin production.
