Whats happening at Torchcraft....
Had a really interesting order for a 48" tall heart. Iniitals to represent the husband and the wife's names and the reverse cut letters of "I LOVE YOU" in the middle of the heart. This heart was going to be hung 40 feet high in the fork of a tall tree outside their home. An LED light would be on the back side of the heart and the small holes drilled around the border would highlight the shape of the heart at night. The initials painted a light color to show up at night on the brown base.
The heart was a birthday gift for the wife and after getting to know the husband, I believe it was true love. But it is certainly good insurance, anyway.
Horseshoes bookends with names have been a long time gift item. It's a great gift that is personalized with the person's name, brand or initials. This set is an order from a long standing customer that always orders these for wedding gifts. They can be made with two horseshoes to serve as a letter holder.
This is a great gift idea for anyone with a brand or someone who wants a brand. The brand is created and mounted on a base. In this case the base is the state of Texas and tempered with heat to give it the colors. A wall hanger is mounted on the back side for hanging on a wall. A great Christmas gift for the person that is hard to buy for?
I liked the little boy and little girl angels in the State outline. This was something special that has meaning to the land owners. And, I always like windmills. The cowboy is of a different generation and reminds me of my dad when he was horseback.
Had the opportunity to creat a sign for a good friend who purchased a ranch out of Ruidoso, New Mexico. The ranch is among the Vera Cruz Mountain range and the sign reflects that range in it's design. Also reflected is all of the critters that live on that range and of course the famous Kokopelli doing all of the Kokopelli things that they do on that ranch. It is a beautiful area and I got the pleasure of going there and seeing the sign grace the ranch headquarters.
