Frank Buchwald makes amazing lamps.

This is the work of a true craftsman. These lamps are very very beautiful.

Very cool light sculptures...

Check out these cool light sculptures by Dylan Kehde Roelofs. The golden, intimate light of Yesterday, in the Bulb of Tomorrow.

The slow and tedious making of a vacuum tube.

Fabrication d'une lampe triode
envoyé par F2FO

Check out this absolutely mesmerizing (17 minute!) video of a French amateur radio operator who rolls his own vacuum tube triodes! I love the ease with which he performs these rather high-end skills (like glass forming), the gestural flourishes (like it's hand magic), and the Zelig-esque soundtrack.

Made in Chelsea

Thursday, December 27, 2007


Here is the latest project on display at the Made in Chelsea exhibit. Always looks nice on a wall. Nanda also has a few of her paintings there. I am really liking this dot thing I am doing. This is dot Nanda #1; measures 30" x 30".

My new poject

Thursday, November 01, 2007

Here is a "work-in-progress" shot of a new project. I am not sure what to call it. A painting? ā€” there is no paint used. Pointillism? ā€” I wouldn't even come close to Seurat. Dottillism? ā€” Maybe...
As you can see my muse is the same, still so inspiring.... This is a step up from my last project which is kind of close to this. Once this is done I will take a better photograph during the day.

Artwork now for sale at SAATCHI

Tuesday, October 23, 2007


My tube sculptures are now also available to the world at Saatchi's online gallery. Be sure to check it out. You can view some work and see my profile.
The Saatchi online gallery is really great. Although the site is somewhat of a usability disaster, they are working hard at updating it when they can. Not bad for a free service...
Also don't forget I am in the Saatchi Showdown too!
