Scraphound Studio

Sheri Fox & Jon Rawlinson – ScrapHound Studio
Sonoma County

We are scavengers at heart, salvaging and foraging where we can, giving new life to items otherwise left behind. Our work veers wildly from salvaged steel and wood side tables to glass-embellished cow skulls. Beautiful, functional, sculptural, quirky—our creations contain a little bit of all those things, sometimes all at once. Classes in mosaic offered.
