Artist Bio
Mick Whitcomb is a Missouri based artist who specializes in one-of-a-kind furniture and lighting made from architectural and industrial salvage. In 2011 Mick founded the company Nomad World Products with his wife Paige. Today Mick and Paige travel the world sourcing unique materials for Mick’s “Artifacts” line. Fixated on the American Machine Age and the advent of electric lighting, Mick converts 19th century machines and scientific instruments into utilitarian sculptures. Mick pairs actual objects from the 1800’s with lighting technologies that are exact reproductions of Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla’s original inventions of the incandescent bulb and alternating current. Each piece tells the story of an innovative past that birthed modern American industry. These objects have been re-discovered, re-worked, and re-imagined to bring renewed function to a past generation of machines.
