Thanks for making the connection. If you ever feel like coming up to Northern Pennsylvania, please look me up. I'd love to show you around the art department here and introduce you to the other artists in the area. - Cappy

Hi Adam,

             We live just a few blocks from the Glass Center.  Your work looks familiar.

I havn't been up to Touchstone since I taught there about 6 years ago. Please do keep in touch.

Hi Adam, good to meet you, I appreciate you reaching out to make a connection with me (and other regional artisans).  I will check in to see what is going on at Touchstone & feel free to send any info my way. ~Laura

The blue steel is reclaimed was part of a mechanism that would be picked up with a tow motor and used to tilt/pour a 55 gallon drum. I cut the useable pieces of steel out, worked the surface, drilled holes/filed them square/rectangle, etc. The other elements of the boxes are forged from reclaimed material (spline gears, etc.) as well.

Yes, I would be interested in teaching a workshop at Touchstone. I've taught at Penland, Peters Valley and Haystack...and I'm on the board of Haystack School. I've heard many positive things about the studios at Touchstone. Hopefully, we can work something out.
