me wants

Just found this. I year ago I ordered VCU's painting and printmaking A wacom CINTIQ 21UX but never really had a good reason to use it. Now that I have found this I am all in. Maybe New Paltz will want one?
I am always trying to bridge the gap between analog and digital in my studio practice. Recently I have to abandon prototyping and laser cutting and go back to the basics. It has been refreshing and gratifying. Saying that, I am still interested in all things digital. I would love to try this out just to see if it is as fluid as it appears. No one likes re-learning the interface when moving from one 3D package to another (Rhino to Maya for example) My brain gets confused and I find myself clicking control instead of shift or whatever. This just seems like one of those things that would need some time to get used to. Damn you brain.

3D blog

Just found this blog. Thought I would share.

Its called Fabbaloo here is a blurb from their site

Fabbaloo tracks developments in Fabbing, 3D Printing and Desktop Manufacturing. We believe in a future where everyone can easily make any 3D objects by using inexpensive desktop equipment, much like we use inkjet printers today for two-dimensional paper objects. It's also known as Desktop Manufacturing, Rapid Prototyping or Digital Manufacturing. We call it Fabbing.

Take over a whole store. Someday when the economy is not in the dumpster. until then there is this. Nice.

flavor shaker

I hate to advertise for a product but.... Liz ordered me this for my birthday and it just came in the mail. I am a sucker for kitchen gadgets so immediately I loved it. Its made of high impact plastic and has this ceramic ball inside that pummels the crap out of spices or herbs or whatever. Its actually a great idea. I had seen it on the food network via : Jamie Oliver some time ago. I think I tried ordering it but it wasn't being sold on "this side of the pond". Anyhoo just thought I would post about it since I have been doing a lot of cooking lately. My only complaint is that I wish it was bigger. It makes the perfect amount of marinade/dry rub/sauce or whatever for two servings but you will have to double the process for anything more. Great idea.

some exciting things over the weekend.

First let me say that being sick sucks. I have been in bed for the last the last three to four days and I can't kick this nasty yellow crap that has been oozing from my nose and mouth.

Lets go over a few things that I missed.

First this not so great review of the recent Museum of Arts and Design openings by ROBERTA SMITH of the New york times

Then a truly incredible display of enameling and jewelry here at the SDMA at SUNY New Paltz.

The Center for Craft, Creativity and Design
board approved the panel recommendations awarding 10 grants totaling $95,000.00!! (special congrats to Gabriel Craig!)

Ornament As Art, vant-Garde Jewelry from the Helen Williams Drutt Collectionis still up at the Mint Museum.
