This is an 8 foot by 50" neon sign for my bird Rio. I got her in october of 2015. She was 3-1/2 months old then and now she is 10 months old. I have been itching to do something cool for the shop and decided to do a cool colorful bird. Perfect model for a new piece. Since then, I have gotten the bug to continue creating cool pieces for the shop that I actually keep, Hence, The name Fire Creek Gallery. Enjoy.!
The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby was inspired by a desire to build a 1920's style art deco theater marquee. I created the designs and full size patterns, then thought I better watch the movie first and make sure I wasn't building a great piece after a jack wagon. Turns out it was a great love story and he was a flamboyant wealthy billionaire in the 1920's. So,..... I give you " The Great Gatsby" Fire Creek Style
Current Project @ Fire Creek
I had the great pleasure of restoring this marvelous piece from Southern California. It was built in 1936 and eventually made it to the Rogue Valley. Then found its way to Fire Creek Gallery, where I spent a good month meticulously having my way with her.
Thanks to our local American Picker, Casey Gillum, He keeps me busy and the valley stinking rich with great history. Thanks again Casey, keep um coming ! For other cool pieces check the website
