a real studio with real making work time

By November 14, 2011 Uncategorized

here are some pictures of the studio in its most recent completeness (and glory). its good to go in most every respect and i can say quite honestly that i have zero complaints–just hearts and exclamations here.
i’m particularly fond of the vent unit. and the shiny torch parts. and of course all of the other tools too…

and here are some (really and rough) in-progress images of a piece i am working on for an upcoming (opening february 2012) exhibition at the Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum in Milwaukee, WI. the exhibition is called The Decorative Impulse and it “aims to look at the decorative impulse in contemporary artistic production: how and why artists employ, reference, and quote the decorative arts.” 
the other participating artists are: Jamie Bennett, Gésine Hackenberg, Rory Hooper, Anya Kivarkis, and Jonathan Wahl.
i will be showing both sculpture and jewelry, one piece of which is a remake of something i had experimented with over the summer with plywood and chain. this time around i am using sheet steel and will powder coat the entire thing. flatter and all silhouette.
