Born and raised ten miles from the White House, Al’s work is heavily influenced by his love for history and architecture. This desire to preserve history inspired him to repurpose antique tin ceiling tiles. After twenty years, Al is amazed by the patterns and beauty the tin brings to life. Whether it’s a mirror frame, box, or umbrella stand, Al says he lets the tin decide what to make. His work has been sold in Dallas, Houston, Scottsdale, and Santa Fe.
