Missing sculptor worked at ZZQ
Sines worked as a metal sculptor at ZZQ in Scott's Addition and was a crucial part of the opening of the barbecue joint, according to owners Chris Fultz and Alex Graf.
"It was Sines, a metal sculptor and friend of Fultz for 30 years, who brought Fultz's artistic vision to life with his unique skills and craftsmanship," Graf wrote in an email. "From the longhorns above his backyard patio gate, to the tap and door handles, to the wood and metal tables in the backyard, it's all Sines's work, which was his passion, as well."
The owners of ZZQ, who said staffers have been "working with a big hole in their hearts for the last week," are pleading for the public to be on the lookout for Sines.
"We just want our friend back," Graf said.
