Bruce Caulde and Jennie Cole are both Birmingham residents who were inspired by the timeless industrial charm of the city. Bruce is a self taught clock maker, who has a degree in electronics. His love of industrial and clock work inspires each of his hand crafted works. All of his scrap pieces inspired Jennie  to create various pieces of jewelry. This idea evolved into using vintage jewelry, old pieces of clocks, and other odds and ends to create beautiful up-cycled jewelry. The pair work together frequently on new ideas, every show they will have something new and wonderful to show. There greatest achievement as of late is representing Birmingham in the best Steampunk convention in the US, they were chosen from steampunk creators from all over the world to sell their wares. With this big step forwards, and all the support from our clients at local markets, they hope to have a brick and mortar store coming with in the next few years. 

Below is some pictures of their work!

I was born as the product of a beautiful love affair between a German girl, and an American Soldier. The first four years of my life was throwing many tantrums so bad that I would remain an only child. My fantasy world emerged and started to take form. As a child I would collect pictures out of magazines and carry them around. Hypnotized by their glaring eyes and expressions, I constantly felt alone and isolated from the rest of my family and friends, I was simply different and preferred my fantasy world. At 7, I started drawing and by age 9 did my first oil painting which was a landscape. By high school, I was experimenting with many different styles including portraits. However when I was exposed to the works of Salvador Dali, my perception changed. I could do anything! How I saw the world became acceptable. From this point on, I realized as an artist I see the world differently. I have participated in many events from group shows to art festivals throughout the years.  It wasn’t unt...

Brian Burks was raised in the heady Hispanic culture of Arizona and navigated his teen years on a steady diet of comic books and punk rock, all of which contributed to his development as an artist.

An Alabama resident for about a decade, Brian has only recently started creating art full-time but already has a devoted online fanbase. He's also picking up new fans at art shows, conventions, art crawl, farmer's markets, and flea markets all across and around the Birmingham, Alabama area Brian is constantly working on commissions and loves taking other people's ideas and turning them into his own creations.

Brian's currently working on acrylic paintings, ink on paper, recycled mediums, jewelry, and novelty items like magnets and buttons, and will soon be rolling out a line of t-shirts. He shows several times a month, and will be vending at the upcoming Punk Rock Flea Market, The Day of the Dead Festival, and the Pagan Pride Festival in Auburn.
