Motorcycle Culture Inspired Pizza Cutters

frankie5frankie4frankie3frankie2frankie1Frankie Flood is an artist and professor of jewelry and metalsmithing at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. In his website, he writes:

“My machined pizza cutters draw inspiration from chopper motorcycles that are built by people in a subculture that attempts to reclaim the mythology and economic usefulness of the American worker as patriarch. The outlaw as defiant nonconformist as well as social outcast is a parallel to being an artist who makes functional objects and an individual who takes pride in the power of labor, invention, and skill”. Hey, I could not say it better. Don’t rush to your local Bed Bath & Beyond. These pizza cutters are one-off and rich people who are always looking for a way to blow money supporting an artist will probably not slice any pizza with them. Like us, Frankie processes include machining, stamping, anodizing, and powder coating to create one of a kind functional objects. I declare him a full member of our custom motorcycle industry.
