Gauge
Greenwood Heights manufacturing
Gauge nyc located in Brooklyn, NY has been handcrafting unique objects in metal for many years. Founded by Paul Smotrys, a self-taught artist, he started showing his metal sculptures in Philadelphia in his early twenties. They were primarily galleries that exhibited fine art, but Paul never thought of himself as just a fine artist. He believed that when something is made beautifully and with heart, there really is no distinction between high art sculpture or a home accessories. He says, “I’ve always been fascinated by the opposing properties of metal. For example, hard/soft, sharp/smooth, immediate/laborious.” His inspiration is that place in between art and industry. The beauty and integrity of metal is the underlying bond within the collection. The results are designs that are straight forward, clean and visually compelling. Some of his objects include decorative letters and words in many styles. Personal cake toppers, simple jewelry in 14k gold and sterling silver. Copper vases reminiscent of vintage pipe fittings, modern interpretations of oval shaker boxes, and the most stunning collections of one-of-a-kind snowflake sculptures. He has done various installations of snowflakes all over New York, from boutique stores to museums. Last Christmas, the snowflakes sparkled in the lobby of American Folk Art museum. His products are sold at exclusive stores and museum shops including The Knot, Fred Siegel, The Museum of Art and Design in New York, Kate’s Paperie and the Princeton University Art Museum. Paul lives in the Financial District in New York City with his wife, the painter Mie Yim and their son Otto.

Wrecords By Monkey

We’re a Brooklyn-based design and lifestyle brand that bridges the worlds of fashion, art and music. We use reclaimed vinyl records to create handmade accessories with a low carbon footprint that relate to music lovers of every generation. We’ve created the brand and its products through innovation and creativity, taking used 33 LPs, the most common records, and turning them from an every day item into an unconventional product. Everything is a combination of something new and old, and through our products we’re giving the vinyl a new life and form as jewelry and home goods when it would otherwise be sitting in a landfill. We know that music is the universal language and you don't have to understand it to understand how a song makes you feel, and records are the symbol of all music. We create modern design with uncompromised craftsmanship and have an understanding of our material and what designs, products, and colors look best with the natural shape and limitations of our vinyl records. Coming from diverse backgrounds with no limits to our ideas, we have created innovative manufacturing processes unique to Wrecords By Monkey for each and every one of our products.
