When Michael first introduced me to mold making, it changed the way I saw the world. It was as if a magic key had been provided to see things not just for what they are but to re-engineer how they were made. As a trained fine artist, mold making was a way to take all those hours of "perfecting" one masterpiece and making it re-producible on a mass scale!

Our first promise is to not to make "land-fill". (A former customer recently called to ask if we wanted to buy our molds back after ten years of production use. He found another buyer, but it was satisfying to hear how long our products stayed in service.) After several years, we hired our first employee, and our family has been growing steadily since. We count ourselves very fortunate to be working with such talented and good spirited people.

It's with great pleasure, come meet our team.
