working towards something

Currently hard at work on the giant flower. First thing was making the mold of the rapid prototyped flower to be able to make a plaster version to be able to make the "real" mold. Whew. I have cast four plaster flowers so far, and currently am hacking and chiseling them into workable pieces. Sadly, when making the rubber mold I had to destroy the original printed flower... This totally ruined the (in my head perfect dream world) vision I had of all our prototypes on display at MOMA.

the beginning of a lot of new stuff

We have a lot of new projects emerging this year. So far so good - since Mike managed to track down this bear head (that I sadly didn't buy a year and a half ago and have NOT shut up about since) at the antique mall where we bought "wolfie". Not five minutes before he gave me this, I was saying how we had to hunt it down while we were in Oklahoma - the best gift ever. And, it looks like Chewy loves it too...

Today we picked up our lion head 3-d print from the lab - and it looks amazing!! Mike covered the entire piece in superglue at a record speed, getting the head ready for molding.

I covered an earlier printout (a giant flower) in foil to begin making mold number 2 - might as well strike while the iron is hot. So, day one back in the studio = goodness.
