We’re Sheri Fox and Jon Rawlinson, collectively known as ScrapHound Studio, a recent addition to the Sonoma County art scene. We have in the past been known as Mad Dog Metal, Jon Raw Designs and the owners of Trios Gallery. We recently moved to rural western Petaluma after 22 years in San Diego. Since our arrival we’ve been gathering various and sundry salvaged materials to create art and furniture. It’s amazing to see what some of these old barns contain!
We are both in love with steel. Our favorite is always the rusty sheet unearthed from the local scrap yard but we have a fondness for rustic barn wood, bent metal pipe, corroded gears – you get the picture. We not only love the search iteself but we are inspired by the materials we find, and saving something from the landfill makes us ridiculously happy.
Please follow along on our ScrapHound Studio adventures. I don’t tend to this blog as often as I should, especially now that our lives are filled with chickens and sheep, falling down barns and branches, and all that rural life has to offer, but I’ll try to update the blog once in a while. In the meantime, browse the portfolio pages using the menu above and check out what we do. You can also catch us more often on Facebook!
