Painted hydrocal and plaster construction. I went and saw Richard Bauer's work, some of which were full body casts. I was impressed.

Found beach rock with a little olive oil to darken. I have another one that looks like a nipple. You can find some very interesting shapes if you just look.

I created the art for this vintage reproduction tin toy. Wind it up and it goes zoom zoom all over the place. I checked the internet one day and found that these replicas are collected all over the world. How cool is that? :)

I designed and built this chair for my daughter Matisse when she was about two years old. One of the few wood working pieces I have left. Fir wood and no nails.

Blue and Yellow Glass Earrings, 2011
Blue and Yellow Glass Earrings, 2011

I went shopping for a friend's birthday. Couldn't find anything so I made her a bunch of earrings. But I had to go to the bead shop a number of times. Much worse than going to Home Depot looking for parts, because I was totally clueless and surrounded by women.

Carl's 2012 Holiday Mix

I stuck this one here because there was a lot of construction. From putting up the tree and organizing the ornaments, the photography, selecting the playlist, printing, cutting and assembling. If you're good, Santa might bring you one next Christmas. :)
