Thank you very much for your help at the show. If I get in again I may take you up on your offer to stay over. Still sorting through paper work. I'll send you a letter in the mail by next Monday. It was so nice to meet you. Thank you again!
Brigitte gave me your name and thought you might be interested in helping me during some of the retail days at the ACC Baltimore show. I really like your installations.

I am glad you like it. Hope we'll get a chance to meet one day. Whenever you plan to come to the Baltimore area - Washington DC is not far away, please, I a happy to show you more of my work in my beautiful studio spaces. Talk to you later ...
I will write in English because I assume most cannot read German here.
Thank you for your compliments. I was not too far away from Cleveland. I was actually in Bowling Green south of Toledo for my MFA. Currently after having taught in Wisconsin I am working in west Michigan, at the Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, twenty minutes east of Holland (German Autobahn speed).
Are you interested in such a table? The page were you saw it was actually a rushed portfolio when I applied for a teaching position. The product is more a concept and not build. The Idea is to as you can see have all cables included and in particular cables and modem inside the table and legs.
I very much agree with you idea about design and art. In Germany I studied strictly design while here in the US I focused on fine arts and self centered work during my grad school time.
I like both for their unique purpose. Combining customer related design work with fine arts is what in my opinion is the most interesting.
You did not notice the origin of the logo?
PM USA is Phillip Morris USA or simply Marlboro.
CK BRD is well my name and Germany. The symbols
left and right are PEZ dispensers replacing Marlboro's horses.
The logo is part of the PEZ dispenser I made PEZboro articulating my research result about nicotine gum abuse and communicating this utilizing rapid prototyping, graphic design, and silversmithing.
I like the mix of disciplines very much as I also do not see myself as a jewelry designer or product designer. I rather studied between the chairs.
Currently I am preparing for three conferences I am attending and thus have not produced new work. I also switched jobs two times in the recent two years and thus was more focusing on those than my private work.
I hope with the next year to be able to produce more again.
crafthaus member Shana Kroiz is in Baltimore - and I think she knows her way around the local art scene. Maybe you want to get in touch with her to see if she can point you to some spaces/galleries and other fun stuff ? Brigitte
