"Among other things," he'll say, "We're number one in the number two business." Fourth generation contractor Herb Mackey will admit to being a lot of things but an artist will never be one of them. "It's my therapy for the last thirty years." And that's about as intimate as he'll get on the subject of his hobby. But the perfectly curt and gruff demeanor honed by six-plus decades of honest, practical hard work, do little to hide his love for making art and for the people around him--from him family to his employees to the ferry travelers who unwittingly pass through his funky, rusted steel world.
