Based in the South Austin Texas, Will Cascio has been in the studio
turning out some of
the most intricate Leather and Silver works in the
world, under the Heavy Magic brand since 1995. His Passion and Dedication,
to the craft are obvious, in the level of detailed stitching and execution in his leather, along with the Rough Old World look and feel of his
Silver works have become his Trademark.
In the past Heavy Magic's creations have gained wide respect, being
an integral part of some of Motorcycling's finest show winning bikes.
His works have been featured on The Discovery Channel's "Great
Biker Build-Off, in the Prestigious Rob Report Collections magazine
-along with numerous Leading Chopper Magazines.
Will's earlier careers include:
nine years as a rodeo cowboy
four years as a Professional Jockey
eight years as a Graphic /Web Designer
23 years on and off for as a Professional Actor/Stuntman
with films like
Back to the Future II & III, Stunt Doubling for Michael J. Fox, and Ninja Turtles III, playing Rapheal Stunt Turtle to his credit.
"Mystery Is All Powerful"
I have a love for old worn items, especially the treasures of the past,
the dark mysterious beauty of the rough craftsmanship, the years of
use and the passage of time all right there for you to see.
"That to me is cool."
When I sit down to a piece for 17+ hours, there comes the hour, when
life, problems, basic distractions all melt away. It is here, in this
area of purity, creation is set free and my world begins.
This is where great work becomes Heavy Magic.
Will's former Graphic design works grace
the covers of 2 music CD releases,tour package design, and Tower Records advertising for Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann's band Trichromes.
His Graphic Art has
been published in several premiere magazines in including:
EFX ART &
CHURN art magazine
RELIX music magazine

|There is Art for Entertainment, there is Art for
and there is an audience for both.
"I'm in it for the Magic."
Note: Heavy Magic is a one man show, there is no "we." My entire reputation is based on a relentless desire for quality, my
skill and my word. There is no production line so my pieces are super limited to what I can
physically put out myself. Every piece, every photograph, all webdesign,
layout, code hacking, graphics, ebay auctions, social networking, email communications, etc. etc. Yes, it is allot
of work to make all ends flow and somehow I have done it since 1995.
-so if I take a bit of time to respond to an e-mail, trust that I will
get there as fast as I can get back around to that side of the table.
Thanks to all of my collectors and all the new folks that allow me to keep bringing the Magic.
