Phoenix Vendor Spotlight: Barclay & Co.

Meet Jackalope Phoenix Vendors, Barclay & Co.  - creators of Spine Wallet.

How would you describe your style?  
I would say our style is sleek, modern and minimalist. We use titanium because it is strong and light.

Are there any artists / designers that you particularly look up to?
I look up to my brother, Caleb Barclay. He is an entrepreneur and designer with a passion for making Arizona great.

What do you feel makes your work unique and truly your own? 
We started a little over a year ago and at that point we had most of our process done outside. At this point I am happy to say we have brought almost all of it in house, including the deburring, anodizing, lasering, and blasting. We are able to offer custom pieces at reasonable costs.

What is your creative process like?
My creative process involves a lot of failure. There is so much to learn when it comes to anodizing and lasering titanium. Typically it starts with some frustration and end with a result I am happy with(hopefully)

Where can we find out more about you?
