I design and build titanium bicycles that
use a belt instead of a chain and the gears are all internal.
Our cargo bikes utilize a belt drive with an internal hub 8
speed. The bike also comes with a dynamo front hub for
running lights or can charge any USB device while you're riding.
I would like to get folks to see all the things a bike can
do, picnics, hunting, fishing, grocery shopping, deliveries,
commuting, etc. My goal is to have more people on bikes
and especially the ones that might not ride a bike now. A
utility bike can offer all these benefits plus the added benefit
of sustainability and health.
John Finch Design Studio
The material that I use is copper. One of the world's most
recycled metals. I use the ancient techniques of Repousse and
Chasing. These techniques are centuries old and I adhere to
pre-industrial processes. I use all hand tools and warm the
pitch needed for the repousse process in a solar oven.
As a result, my finished pieces have minimal negative
environmental impact. In both the studio and home where my wife
and I live and work we strive through our understanding of basic
Permaculture principals to live as lightly as possible in our
beautiful Santa Fe.
My artwork as honors and glorifies the animals and plants which
we often fail to notice. My particular talent is assisting to
'rearrange reality' in order that our connections to other
creatures can become more 'in our visible spectrum' - in a most
colorful, attractive way~!
My products are all made from old Japanese kimono and obi. I use
other old clothes such as jeans as the background fabric. Used
and stained tablecloths, old bed covers and old curtains are
also used in my products. I cut around any damage in these
products. I make purses, scarves, pouches, coasters, pillows and
