2017 AWARD WINNERS

MICHAEL RILEY - 2017 BEST-IN-SHOW AWARD-WINNER! Michael creates found-object art and sculptures in various forms and inspirations and runs his business under the name "Roundhouse Sculptures". Roundhouse Sculptures are created with items that have lived their life and are about to be recycled or thrown out. Michael recycles these items into artfully designed objects. He also makes trains, bugs, spaceships, zepplins, fish, and whatever else he imagines up, out of items lying about the house. In some of his custom works, he will include items of importance to his client, like "Mom's rolling pin" or "This is all that's left of Grandpa's Model T", as sentimental value is sometimes greater than "real, marketable" value.
