Would You Please Feed That Bird what I ask Michele the other morning after hearing a shrill high pitched shriek for an hour.
Today... what looked like a large Maine Coon Cat flying across the neighbors field, landed in a tree next to the studio...

I guess I got too close...

High Tech Texture

...and a bonus

   Organic Computer Generated Forms

The organic looseness of this wheel thrown bowl was made by a computer circuit board.

Amazing how High Technology can create this shape in such a natural way.

The textured impressions of the circuits from the PC board are made by "whacking" the circuit panel against soft clay of the bowl.

The Outdoor Booth

Here it is...but it needs to be brighter.

This is the indoor booth nestle into an E-Zup canopy.
It's a modified version of the all wooden booth I started doing shows with in 1998. We have mixed some Abstracta display parts in with the wood walls and pedestals. Next incarnation will all Abstracta shelving, with fabric backdrops...lighter to travel with, and easier to put up. 

The lights are a bit dim...I'm looking into LED lighting. CFL's are not bright enough. and Halogen are to high wattage for out door shows...or indoor shows for that matter.  The limit is 400 watts and that's just not working for me with Halogen...but LED should give three times the light with the 400 watt limit.
