Detroit Rotterdam Exchange

Jacob's Ladder Duet was a piece created during a concept exchange show between Detroit and Rotterdam.  The concept I received requested a performance take place between a few people playing variations of a "slap stick" instrument.  The sound that instrument makes reminded me of the childhood classic riffed on here.

Another first! Ceramics.

These are my first ceramic pieces since high school.  The first wheel thrown ones ever.  We fired them with waste oil to cone 11 in 3 hours. That's what happens when you put metal artists in charge of the firing.

House on Horton updates

The House on Horton is looking good after a couple months work.  New windows on the second floor, paint all around and a fresh mural by Kevin McCoy.  More demolition this winter and hopefully it'll host its first show in the first half of 2016.

TechShop Snow Speeder!

The X-Wing is no more. This Snow Speeder was built on a much more suitable base and will be doing events for years to come. T-Shirt cannon is fully functional.  Sounds and lights are future upgrades.

Sculpture Materials...

Being an artist is really just an excuse to collect all the things I find interesting.  It's a pretty great gig. Highly recommended.

Molten Fe Coming Soon!

Burning in the refractory of the Fortress cupolette. Now all we need is about 2000lbs of empty molds to fill... and some more tools... and iron... and coke. Maybe by fall.
