Dog Bite Steel

MADE IN: Uxbridge, Ontario

Jean Pierre Schoss uses reclaimed steel to craft unique figures for the backyard, fence, or garden. 

I use recycled materials for a number of reasons. First, it is our responsibility to contribute to this world in as many ways as possible. Garbage is a great place to start.

Oil tanks are costly to cut up and recycle so the scrap yards don’t want them. I began using oil tanks, water tanks and propane tanks to save money because the steel was so expensive. I soon realized what I was doing. The recycling had become part of my life. 

I began to look for more items that could be recycled into my work. If it is thick enough to last for years and years then I am interested. People bring me all sorts of things. I drag things out of the ditches some times and then the earth feels better! I drain the tanks of the sludge and oil and take it to the recycling depot. There is quite a process to getting the steel ready for the sculpture.

The material has a lot of character and always tells a life story. It has a lot more to say than a big, expensive sheet of new grey steel. Some tanks have many layers and colors of paint on them from being painted over the years to match houses and cottages.

Some of my work involves old tools, steps from antique carriages and 70 year old manure spreaders.

I never see just a steel object. I see the new life waiting to come out of it.

Laura Secord

MADE IN: Quebec City, Quebec

Laura Secord's dedication to making only the finest chocolate and treats has made it Canada's best-known chocolatier.

In 1913, Frank P. O’Connor opened a small candy store in Toronto where he sold hand-made chocolates. He named his store after Laura Secord, the Canadian heroine who was a symbol of courage, devotion, and loyalty.

Laura Secord began as a single shop on Yonge Street in Toronto. O’Connor turned the flat above the shop into a kitchen and prepared his own products. Success prompted the company’s expansion across Ontario and Quebec.

By 1950, there were as many as 96 shops in Ontario and Quebec, and Laura Secord chocolate was a well-established family tradition.

Sadie & June

MADE IN: Ottawa, Ontario

When owners Kendall from New Jersey, and Steve from Ottawa met in Florida, they knew that travel would always play an important role in their family's story:

Our hand-embroidered heart maps were born out of this love and our belief that love knows no borders.

The concept: I began embroidering through paper vintage map prints that meant something special to me and Steve.

I chose a classic and simple red heart because of how it boldly stands out on each map. The heart can carry many meanings: where you love, where you met your love, where your heart remains, etc. In 2017, Steve learned how to stitch and we decided to embroider our customers' unique stories full-time!

Just like the red heart, your story gets stitched into a special piece that is made to be a reminder of the places, people, and adventures you hold dear. We love hearing your own stories of love and travel - and how our maps have become your go-to thoughtful gift!
