Rusty Nail Art
A career in construction has meant a life of building for Brent DesRoches, a building inspector who makes decorative pieces from reclaimed railroad spikes and other recycled materials on the side.
Brent grew up by the railroad in rural New Brunswick and has been surrounded by railroads his whole life. His imagination guides his works into something different almost every time he picks up a spike. His unique decorative pieces include an ever-changing variety of people, flowers, canoes, bookends, chairs and so much more!
Each piece carries a story of thousands who have traversed it, and repurposed into a decorative piece meant to last years and years, just as they already have. Brent is hard to miss in the courtyard. Just look for his handmade display and Rusty Nail Art sign.
