WATTO Distinctive Metal Wear
“Metal sculpture, Jon Watson, grew up in the South, went into the army at 17 and then off to design school. For over 15 years he was a graphic designer, but got bored of sitting behind a computer. He began apprenticing with a local metal shop in 2005. In 2007, he bought his own equipment and opened up shop at home and started “The Metal Gardener” with help from wife Mary Spencer-Watson. He began making beautiful sculptures and lighting.
Mary graduated with a degree in Graphic Design and Painting and went on to be a Product Manager in the social expression, craft, puzzle and game industries.
After Mary got laid off in Feb 2009, Mary and Jon decided to start WATTO Distinctive Metal Wear. WATTO was a nickname Jon’s buddies had given him. We decided to focus on belt buckles and accessories which made Mary very happy as she LOVES fashion.
Mary does the graphic work, marketing and upkeep of the site as well as designing a few of the buckles. Together we make a great team, and hope you enjoy watching our adventure as we expand our business and follow our dreams!”
