Somewhere, someone is crafting something by hand, and it's just for you.
It's unique, it's special, it's art.
Each piece of Pat Areias's artistry is hand rendered, one by one. As such, they may be similar, but they are not the same. “The essence of hand fabrication," Areias says, “is that every piece is made by an artisan as an original."

There are no wax carvings, no generating molds to produce hundreds of the same image. Each piece that we create is special, hand crafted, and unique... it's art
