HGR has some of the most interesting and engaging customers around. From big businesses and industrial manufacturers to hobbyists and artists, we’re constantly amazed at how our customers utilize their purchases.
Our customer Gerald Fitzpatrick originally worked in prosthetics, making artificial limbs, and has since retired. Now in his free time, he has leaned into learning metal work and is creating art with industrial surplus.
Gerald fabricates metal sculptures and alternative fashion from industrial supplies that he finds in our Euclid Showroom. From O-rings and sheet metal to grommets and light fixtures, Gerald is hands-on in using these elements to create wearable art that graces runways and fashion shows.
We got a chance to sit down with Gerald and discuss the treasure hunting experience of shopping for industrial surplus at HGR. You’ll learn about why he shops with us here at HGR, what materials he and others can find at our locations, and what to expect when visiting one of our showrooms.
Browse some of Gerald’s art below in the gallery, and find him on Instagram here.
