My Secret Weapon: Most superheroes have a sidekick. Batman and Robin, The Pink Pather and that guy always attacking him. I am very lucky to work with a guy that is truly a genius. He knows 10x what ill ever know. He’s a 73-year-old vegetarian and master craftsman Dwight C Brown. I first met Dwight when I was 12 years old. He was one of the people that caught me when I flew out of the drainpipe from California. He and his brother Kevin started “Tiddies” Sandals in Pasadena, Tx a millionaire in his early 20’s! Dwight has been working with Fiberglass since he was 12 years old fixing surfboards for his friends. He has built many landmark Sculptures all over Galveston & Houston he built the Spinning Fish Tails @ Fish Tales Restaurant on the Sea Wall and the Giant Fishing lure inside of Pier 19. He even built the Trojan Horse inside Mattress Mack’s Furniture store, in Houston, Tx.
We started doing projects together back in 2005 when I needed to build a Giant Moose for Claimjumpers Restaurant chain in California. We’ve been working together ever since.

We started the mystery box, because we have many customers who order frequently, and they always tell us when they receive their order it’s like Christmas Morning! We thought this would be just another fun way for them to be surprised! And they can save money by buying the Mystery box. The $100.00 Mystery box is valued at $140.00. The $50.00 Mystery box is valued at $75.00. We ask them to send us a photo of their collection and we guarantee no duplicates. So, when Corey Sargent Ordered the Mystery Box I recognized the name because they’ve ordered several times, but it had been a few years since I saw the name. I asked to please send the photo so I could pick out the mystery box pieces. Here are the photos they sent above. I actually cried when I opened the photos. I couldn’t believe it! I was able to pick out a few pieces to send them, but it wasn’t easy!!lol!

Mike can make any animal just let us know and we can start your custom order….He also accepts your off the wall ideas, he loves a good muse. Contact us about reserving yours!
What better way to greet your family this holiday season than a Mike Quinn doormat? None...everything else is boring, overdone, sold at a box store plain. Mike's doormats on the other hand are unique, special and dare I say fabulous? Yes, definitely fabulous. Of course we can't just blindly tell you to go buy a doormat without giving a solid critique of how they look in person. Mike has his doormats printed from Zazzle...this make it affordable and frankly he can't make snazzy fish with a warehouse of goodies. So if you want a cool mug, tee or doormat you'll have to check out His Store. Also sales are going crazy on Zazzle right now and they are good enough to give you coupon codes right in the top of the page...Nice.
Back to the doormat...
The coloring if true to the original art
Quality of the print is spot on, you can even see pencil lines.
And of course by big things we mean big fish! You can see the close up details as Mike sculpts the piece, adding texture and design to every inch. Spots, dots, hand carved texture and even some fun shapes are featured with this fish. The teeth are extra big as per protocol with Mike's work. Big Red here is still a work in progress as he still needs the acetate inlays.
This piece named Little Dave went from concept to sea turtle super star! Some of Mike's art starts with a sketch, Some are just free hand in clay and he makes whatever the mood calls for. The drawing is perfectly rendered in ceramic 3-D form, with a few added quirks and a shiny green paint job. Little Dave came to life, and brought joy and happiness to all that saw him (we hope).
Not only can you find little Dave in the shop on occasion, but his adorable face is on some pretty snazzy products, like pens, mugs, mouse pads, night lights, tees and even super snazzy high tops. Seriously how cool is that?!
