Nuts for Mercury
I'm Troy and DeTroyt Fabrications is my creative outlet. I chose the name because I live in Detroit and "de" in French means "of". All my creations are: "of" Troy. Add the great city of Detroit and you have DeTroyt Fabrication Studio. I started my career as an Imagineer for Walt Disney. I was able to learn from hundreds of talented artists building models of new rides for the parks. There; almost everything was built using repurposed items modified to extract its beauty in an extraordinary new way. I enjoy giving new life to items that society had discarded as irrelevant. We are surrounded by such beautiful architecture has been allowed to decay, but I love it when architects and designers embrace the beauty of the industrial age that made this city great. I like to think I’m doing my part to preserve our heritage. I try to recapture some of that industrialist optimism by bringing that style into my art. There are similarities, and occasional duplicates, but each piece will have it's own character and charm. I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy creating them.
