"Miel. It was such an excellent weekend. I'm really glad we got to spend a little down time last Sunday after the workshop. I've been itching to make some ball sockets and do some chasing and repousse. Hope our paths cross again soon.
I thought you might be in Pittsburgh for the weekend. Would have been great to catch up. Ruthie arrived home after 3 weeks in Australia on the night of the SCC opening...otherwise, we'd have been there. We'll definitely make the roadtrip to Pittsburgh to view the exhibition, though. I'm excited to see everyone's work in person.
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner - regarding powder coating I'd try www.eastwood.com and www.caswellplating.com and a quick search turned up www.powderbuythepound.com (never used them before). I do know that when Frankie Flood came back to UIUC to teach this, we just heated and cured our samples in toaster ovens. Totally jealous...this is something I really want to get my students doing, too!
You are VERY welcome !! I wanted to definitely get that in before your special date, knowing that you'd have your hands full on or around Oct 31 :-)
All's well in the 'burgh. Wishing you and Greg the best for the big day. Been there. It's going to be so wonderful! Big hug!!!

These are the test pieces - a sort of proof of concept. The actual part that will allow Sean to work his magic was sent to the laser cutter earlier today.…See More
