I can't remember if I posted this. I just watched Objectified with my Digital Fabrication class. It had ups and downs. It kind of made me feel like a waste. I feel like I should be a collector instead of a maker. Are we all just spinning our wheels? How is what I am making important to the world? Do I just make things because I have to? Is it part of who I am? Is it that important? On the eve of SOFA I feel like I need to re-evaluate the subject of my lecture and completely re-work it.

Just realized that there are so many things missing from the list. Krispie Kreme, VCU, Ipanema, Cous Cous...etc etc etc.
Also our houses almost made it in the Times (Thats the New York Times folks). If only the cameraman had stepped to the right about 5 feet. Oh well. On that not we have two beautiful places for rent. A studio apartment and house for in Richmond VA. Near Gallery Five. Both newly renovated with all new appliances and new hard wood floors. If anyone wants photos LMK

I have to take a quick break from my grueling studio schedule and talk about our recent visiting artist here at SUNY New Paltz, Tom Joyce. Oh man. What to say? What to say? I remember his lecture at SNAG a couple of years back being absolutely amazing and this lecture was no different. It was just eye opening and mind blowing. I have a new found respect for metals and metalsmithing as a whole. It made me seriously want to get back to work. For me it was perfect timing for such a motivational lecture. The number one thing that I got from all of it was "keep working". I tell myself that everyday but his lecture just hammered it home (hah!) Here are just a few images of his work. I especially love the prints that he has done with burning wood panels.
