Vintage CarsA small sample of very rare and valuable vintage cars that Luke has re-made or restored something for. He has been the fabricator in the complete restoration/ race prep of several of these famous cars, so serial numbers have been included for some. All have been restored for Concours d’Elegance, and for competitive racing.
From the Earth to the MoonSpacesuits custom fabricated while Luke was with Global Effects, for the HBO mini-series From the Earth to the Moon. They have since been featured in films and on television many times since. Luke worked on the Gemini, Mercury, Apollo, Skylab, and Space Shuttle EVA suits and helmets.
Architectural WorkLuke is proud to be a union journeyman in the Sheet Metal Workers International Association, Local 104. He is an expert with all mathematical layout techniques, providing consistent, precision fabrication. This is only a small fraction of his completed architectural work.
SculptureA hand-wrought copper grape vine sculpture, with over 30 individually made leaves, a grape cluster repoussed into thick copper sheet, and over ten feet of twisting, interwoven hammered-copper vine. Also featured is George Lucas’ own bronze and copper pavilion hood, and masks in different styles and mediums. Sculptures are also available in precious metals.
