The oil company developed a blow-out preventer to preventt accidents. The image on the left door is a close-up of the device on the right door, illustrating how it works. The company had us etched these pieces to serve a dual purpose: to provide privacy in the office and to showcase the appearance of their invention.
For privacy reasons, we have obscured the background and added the company logo to this officer's door.
Privacy was required on this subsidiary office door, so we created a solid etch background with their logo in the center. The entire image was hand-cut.
This etching portrays the migration of the owner's first Gyro location from New York to Houston. A compilation scene from each city provides a glimpse of the American Dream.
This is one of our very first commercial jobs. We etched and painted it on-site, collaborating with the designer to create an Art Deco-style image. The piece on the right is now housed in the Galveston Railroad Museum. We finished these pieces back in October of 1987, and the colors still look great even today.
