Texas is nicknamed the Lone Star State to signify Texas as a former independent republic, and as a reminder of the state's struggle for independence from Mexico. The "Lone Star" can be found on the Texan state flag and on the Texan state seal.The origin of the state name, Texas, is from the word, "Tejas", which means 'friends' in the Caddo language.The term "six flags over Texas" refers to several nations that have ruled over the territory. Spain was the first European country to claim the area of Texas. France held a short-lived colony in Texas. Mexico controlled the territory until 1836 when Texas won its independence, becoming an independent Republic. In 1845, Texas joined the United States as the 28th state. The industry that emerged after the Civil War was cattle. Due to its long history as a center of the industry, Texas is associated with the image of the cowboy. The state's economic fortunes changed in the early 20th century, when oil discoveries initiated an economic boom in the state. With strong investments in universities, Texas developed a diversified economy and high tech industry in the mid-20th century.  Texas has led the nation in export revenue since 2002 and has the second-highest gross state product.


Most pieces come in standard sizes of 16” x 9”. The metal stands away from the wood approximately ½”. Each piece contains hanging hardware, an authenticity sticker, and is personally hand-signed by the artist.


The artist is a native of Greenwood, MS, a town on the east side of the Mississippi delta bordered by the Tallahatchie and Yazoo Rivers. His interest in repurposing came at a young age as he first learned woodworking and metal carving skills from his father who made folk harps.   He started crafting these magnificent creations in his retirement after attending Mississippi State and a corporate career with Fed Ex. He now resides in Hernando, MS.
