Inspired by their son’s second grade school assignment in 2000, Vintage Sculpture has grown into a family business that continues to find and recycle vintage materials into fun, creative, and inspirational art. Each whimsical piece is handmade and exclusive, lending to its unique story and sure to make you smile!
"Brad and Sundie's Story is one of our favorites: An Assignment. A Ceiling Tile. A Turkey. A Business.
Creative businesses start in creative ways.
Vintage Sculpture started in 2000 with an assignment from their son Tucker's 2nd grade teacher. Tucker came home with a Thanksgiving assignment to make a turkey. The whole family had to be part of the creation.
Tucker decided he wanted to make his bird out of the vintage ceiling tin that they were making into boxes and selling at the local farmers' market. The family worked together to make a ceiling-tile gobbler.
Tucker turned in his turkey and came home with an A and five orders from teachers and parents for more!
You never know where life is going to lead you, but who would have thought that a 2nd grade class project would launch a business!
That turkey has led them down many roads and loving their crazy life of creating and selling the art fashioned out of cast-off and vintage materials: the truest form of recycling! Although, they basically work whenever they are awake, they love the flexibility it allows.
They find inspiration everywhere "from the piece of metal the kids pick up while walking down the street to stopping at little hole-in-the-wall joints to search out vintage treasures in antique stores and flea markets to being inspired by fine art museums."
