Lost Mountain Clayworks
Lost Mountain Clayworks is the pottery studio of Mark Heimann, located in the lush forests of western Oregon. His work is deeply spiritual, often inspired by Viking, Native American and Eastern cultures.
That being said, Captain Quicksilver is the rough-and-tumble alter ego of Heimann, and it is he who commands Quicksilver’s Pirate Pots, the brutal and seaward dealings of Lost Mountain!

Captain Jack's Pirate Hats
We here at Brainside Out are damn proud to say that we build websites for modern-day pirates. The talented pirate and hatter behind Captain Jack’s Pirate Hats is known as The MacKay, and he makes and sells only the finest in handcrafted pirate headwear.
We’ve been helping The MacKay run his online habadashery since early 2005, work that has included a thoughtful rearchitecture of the online product catalog, updates and maintenance to site content to keep things current and spiffy, and a lot of standards-based judo.
