Brad Brautigam is an artist and designer from Appleton, Wisconsin.  

After a brief stint selling t-shirts and skiing Colorado in the late '80's, he returned to the University of Wisconsin to finish his degree in Art History. This naturally lead him to Homer, Alaska to work as a commercial fisherman. Several years later he moved to Minneapolis with his future wife and fellow deckhand, Colette. There he began his career as a professional firefighter. After the birth of their two sons, they moved back to his hometown in Wisconsin. Brad is currently a fourth generation Appleton firefighter.

His nostalgic spirit and lifelong passion for tinkering inspires him to create new lives for old treasures. 

An homage to simpler times... when form was as valued as function.
