Over the years I have learned that working with my hands and creating new things helps me cope with my depression. So, to help myself maintain a healthy life style I try to create something new every day.
This website started out as a place to share my metal work. This past winter I was unable to get to the welding school to work so making crafts at home seemed like a good substitute, candles, wine bottle stoppers, magnets and so on. I also tried my hand at mosaics. I now have a whole new respect for people who create beautiful mosaics!
Making these balls was fun and it was great therapy!
C over lambda of course!
I can’t help it when ever anyone says, “whats new?” I automatically think C over lambda! I have my father in Law to thank for that one, thanks Dad! For those of you that don’t know what I am talking about, Physicists use the Greek letter nu to represent the frequency of light, which can be expressed as its speedc divided by its wavelength lambda.
So this piece is not nu but, it is new!
Standing 26 inches high, It’s New, will make an awesome side table or hallway table. Made from brake drums, a crank shaft and a few other odds and ends this piece is ready for a new home!
Glass in photo is 24 inches round.
As a child my parents would take us kids to the Seattle Center on the weekends. We would play carnival games, visits the science center, ride the monorail and we would often end the day with a trip up to the top of the Space needle.
Today I got to experience Seattle Center in a whole new way. I made a delivery to the 4th floor of the Center house which is the home for the New Seattle branch of The Academy of Interactive Entertainment. I have to admit it was strange driving around inside Seattle Center!
Below photos are of Madeleine Erhardt, Head of Administrations, US campuses with the two new works of functional art.
A bit about the two pieces I delivered to the school for the lobby , the first is a coffee table that I call Saucy as it was made from car parts and a sausage plate.The second piece is from my series Light from War , which is a sculpture / hall table that provides light and makes a great conversation piece. Light from War was made from a World War ll case that was used to store a howliter missile.
If you know someone interested in a career in the game industry AIE is school to check out!
Since I use my ipad to take most of my photos I usually take photos in my garage or outside. This tends to lead people to think my work is for outside.
So today I lugged this piece in the house to take a photo to show you all how lovely these look indoors! This piece stands about 18 inches high and has a 30 inch piece of glass on top.
This piece is already sold and will be living on the 4th floor of the center house at the Seattle Center. Home of AIE game design school!
I want to thank the folks at AIE for having me make some lobby furniture for them.
Since this is going to the game design school I thought a few game industry books might look nice.
Light of War Photo 1: Sold 2/10/2012 I will be delivering this piece to its new home at Seattle Center, where it will provide light and maybe a bit of inspiration at the new game school in town! http://www.theaie.us/
Remnants of War :photo 2 also sold 2/10/2012 to Trish Bennon of Bremerton Washington.
Both pieces were made from car parts and an old military container that once stored a Howlitzer missile dated 1944. This functional art can double as a tall corner table. Lights can be changed out easily. Light prices start at $425.
