Background & History
We believe in high quality, small batch design and fabrication, collaborating with other local creatives, industry and craftspeople to promote and foster modern Canadian design and makers.
ox + monkey design and fabrication is the design-build partnership of Jeremy Clement & Kez Sherwood. In 2009 we designed and built four bike trailer prototypes. In 2010 we made the jump to invest in equipment and build a company together to offer high quality custom metal work.
Our projects now include CNC machined rings, product fabrication, artist frames, stairs, etc. When time permits we have fun working on our own furniture and prototypes. We work with other small businesses, designers, artists & homeowners.
The ox + monkey name is said in Chinese astrology that if both ox (Kez) + monkey (Jeremy) are willing to co-operate, this can be a formidable and fun team.
Our Customers Say
“I like the feel of the cedar against my back as we lean back enjoying the chin-deep warmth and looking up at the stars. It is very relaxing in the “soak”.

“The SOAK has completely changed our outdoor experience at our cabin and we love it. Cannot thank you enough for creating a beautiful work of art that just happens to be the best damned wood hot tub around. Everyone who has visited has hot tub envy. Who needs electricity?!”
Doug Quist – Alaska
“I love my aluminum frames made by ox and monkey, they were easy to work with and design whatever element you are working for. They were fast, efficient and fairly priced. I will definitely be using their services again and recommend anybody else do the same.”
