Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightening

As part of a new project on which I'm working - "Cold Genius" - I needed to draw a LOT of snowflakes in Rhino, which is possible using a 30:60:60 degree triangle and cutting out chunks, then duplicating and mirroring it and rotating copies around an axis. What a hassle! However, a quick online search brought me this brilliant Snowflake Generator from Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. Worth using for the name… Continue

Frustrating


Just had the most horribly non-achieving week. Everything I tried to do ended in problems which can only be solved by waiting for tools and materials to be delivered.

Bah!

Greener Grass: Leaded v. Unleaded Vitrious Enamels

The latest newsletter from Schlaifer's Enameling Supply announcing the arrival of discontinued Thompson Leaded enamels has re-piqued what was already a burgeoning curiosity. I've never worked with leaded enamels and wonder about their advantages (and perhaps disadvantages). There is admittedly an appeal in something that requires a little more care and caution (though, lead free vitrious enamels require plenty of this as well). Next paycheck i think i will put a little money into this…

Back From Edinburgh

Just got back from Edinburgh where I met up with fellow Crafthaus member, Yi Liu, where we discussed a possible collaboration in the spring. Unfortunately, it was only a short meeting but we chatted about loads of things and arranged to meet again in Birmingham for Spring Fair and to actually get to work on something then. Here he is with some of his work:…

Busy Week! Orton International Cone Box Show and Demo at Bracker's Good Earth Clays

I messed up. The workshop was at Bracker's last Saturday. I had a blast. I didn't think I could do it, since I have been taking a break from making pots for about 2 months. All went well though.

The opening reception for the Cone Box is this Friday, September 15th at 7pm at the Lawrence Art Center in Lawrnece, Kansas. Pots will be on display AND for sale. They go fast, so get there early. By the way, I have a piece in the show.

Documenting Work...

What's a great way to spend a Friday night, and I'm not being sarcastic here? I spent last night documenting some of my recent work with Maureen Keaveny, which was so much fun! I really like shooting work on models as well as off the body; and my models were great. I attached a couple pictures below, one of Josie wearing her wedding dress to highlight the design of the neoprene necklaces. And another of Olivia, she looks amazing in the retroglo…

The Sketchbook Project 2010

I got my 5x8.5 Black Moleskine two days ago for the Sketchbook Project ( http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject ).

Eventhough I am pretty excited about the possibilities of this little book, I have only barely started to decorate the inside cover. There is something daunting about a blank book. Even more daunting is knowing the book won't go on my shelf when it's full but will go away and…

Rest

The end of the week. I've finished all my work for the exhibition and have started making the boxes - from old cigar boxes (which I get from a tobacco merchant in Edinburgh, not by smoking!) - for the pieces. Next week, I will be in Brighton to recharge the batteries and to work on an idea which has been obsessing me for quite a while: a box/pendant on the theme of "Cold Genius" based on the ideas from Act III, Scene II of Purcell's opera "King Arthur". For those who are interested, I've posted… Continue
