Arrowmont 2010 Workshop

Check out my workshop this summer June 20-26!

Course Description:
Righteous Reliquaries for Ordinary Objects

Create elaborate containers for those cherished items you keep tucked away, wrapped up in an old sock, or something that you interact with everyday. The focus of this workshop will be designing small containers that incorporate mechanisms from basic hinges to cradle hinges, bayonet closures and more… and we can’t leave out pressure fitting. Cold connections and entrapment will also be covered as we are working with found objects which may not be able to withstand heat. Surface treatments and embellishments will be addressed as well along with cutting glass for viewing options. Students will relate their design choices back to the items they choose to contain.
It will be fun!

New Photo Approach!

After thinking about it for a few years, I finally went and picked up a sheet of black laminate to shoot my larger pieces on instead of our usual grey paper. See the difference... I like it! At ASU we like to keep the drama in our images and out of the studio.
