Rescue and Restore
Jason Tedder never considered himself an artist or even a creative person. But three and a half years ago, after a 15 year career in agriculture, the rusted and broken old pieces of farm equipment saw new life and purpose as functional art and decor. This also brought new life and purpose to Jason as well, with each piece a unique and custom design.
The first time Jason showed his works was at an art show in a local town. At first, he thought his invitation was just for him to look around, until they asked him to bring his functional art. “I feel blessed and awed that people like my work and that they want to buy it.”
Jason can be found picking at local farms in Georgia, selling and buying at Scotts Antique Market in Georgia, Round Top Antiques Fair in Texas and the Brimfield Flea Market in Massachusetts. “It’s good to take old pieces and use them in ways that can be enjoyed again” says Jason, “These things would go to waste if not for making them good again.”
