Water, in all its importance to the human condition, plays an important role in Union Hardware products. This 365 sq ft digital painting pays homage to the role of water in Art and in our daily lives. It's a lighthearted tribute to some great and near-great masterpieces that refer to water in some way. And one or two that don't, but which delight us anyway.

Never before replicated in a Post-Door Hardware impressionistic style, this rendering utilizes over 1,250 door knobs, levers, and back plates from Italy, Germany and the U.S. The background consists of PVC boards that the artist stained with PVC primer. All of the hardware for this creative repurpose is old, remnant, and has been salvaged and accumulated over the course of many years. This visionary and design-forward endeavor perhaps marks the first time such materials have ever been used in the art world. - See more...
Introducing Loo-cy, our Hybrid motorized Loo. Loo-cy was first introduced in the DC Pride parade in 2014 as Loo-Cille (in white and pink). Loo-Cille's next appearance was a breakthrough where she won 2nd place at a car show in Potomac, MD. When Loo-Cille entered the Back to Bethesda car show during the Taste of Bethesda, Loo-Cille got a makeover and became the Loo-cy that you see today. After two car shows, Loo-cy entered an air show in Gaithersburg, MD, where it delighted the crowd around the runway. When winter hit, Loo-cy was fitted with a snowplow and the crowd went wild.

High end to Union Hardware is doing something well. Not just going part way. Commit. In the pride parade where politically incorrect is correct, we went for it. Like Grease Lighting, we needed to name our ride to get the crowd into the spirit of the parade. After the flames behind the front wheel went on, the name was obvious.
