Hand Made Art By Mike Gothe

I have had so much fun with this collection of License Plate  art!

Every time Mike and his brother Dick come up north they bring me a new design. How do you like this running Elephant? His ear flaps in the wind.

Mike makes the best sailboat plaques out of Michigan license plates. Snip here and a snip there and a sail appears out of nowhere. 

And if you are a resident in more than one state he makes combination pieces. Florida/Michigan, Ohio/Michigan, Michigan/Ontario and other combos. His brother, Dick, searches out all of the different plates.

He's a thinker! Actually he's an artist. The lighthouse design came from a gal down in Manistee.

That's a lot of tin snipping going on here. A plate for every state in the correct shape and location. The Alaska plate is fantastic.

These two brothers, Mike and Dick Gothe, make my day!
