…coming soon… it’ sitting in the press getting flat. Meanwhile here are the graphics for the covers of “(K) Kicks” The book pretty much sucks — it’s a one day after all. But I like the graphics.
I took a PMC (precious metal clay) workshop with Meredith Arnold last weekend. It took about 8 hours to make these four pieces in a class room. They are construction samples so finish quality is low. PMC is nice to work with. The tools can be very simple and it really does work like modeling clay. […]
From QFC this morning:
More on the screen for Jim’s office. Once the stencil had had chance to dry I took the fabric panels off the screen (yeay velcro.) I didn’t do any prep work on the fabric — poly(?) canvas. The paint will stick well enough and I don’t expect to try to wash the panels. By the time […]
I seem to be on a roll here with the purple stuff. This is a quick book binding project. The text block was purchased from Paper Source. It comes with cover boards but without a spine board. Japanese paper and book cloth. I like this long format for guest books or albums.
In order to hide the backs of a number of monitors and computers in Jim’s office we put up a cheap three panel screen. It’s very boring thing. But… the panels are white “canvas” and that means they don’t have to stay boring. So I finally found a stencil that I wanted to use in […]
Took an upholstery class at Pacific Fabrics over the weekend. I want to make new cushions for the porch furniture. The result of about 5 hours of work is this lovely and quite useless cushion. I like the drip effect of the stripes and dots. It’s not as hard as I thought but not easy either. […]
Well, here we are at the start of a new trials season. I hadn’t gotten nearly as much practice over the winter as I’d hoped, partly due to the pressures of my job, and partly due to the 2 FEET of snow we had around christmas! yikes. That is really unusual for western Washington, and […]
Two galleries of pictures from last week’s day-trip to the Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands for the purpose of picking up the pig. (Yummy fresh pork!) First a general gallery — mostly shots that Jim took. And a collection, mostly mine — a few of Jim’s, taken at the ferry dock at Lopez Island on the way […]
