Voyeurism.

I think this project takes Voyeurism to a new level – and I LOVE IT! How awesome would this be! 78 little bird families all viewable through a peephole…

Art!!

Whenever a gift might be coming my way – All I really want is ART! This weekend we headed down to Portlandia for a little get-away weekend and went to the Augen Gallery to check out the latest show – I got MONKEY SMILE instantly! I was so excited by the work of Hibiki Miyazaki! And then I got DOUBLE MONKEY SMILE when Jesse got me this as an early birthday present!!!

It goes really great with the Faye Jones piece he got me when I had Grace and it seems there is a real Mother-Daughter theme starting to take shape in my collection as well as in my own work … More on that later!!

National Geographic

I used to love going through these magazines as a kid and would get them for my kid now if we didn’t already have so much crap – but look what I just found – and ordered for Christmas!  The database is searchable with over 200,000 photos – plus there is an interactive mapping feature that pulls up the whole history of articles for that place etc. So Cool! I didn’t think I was such a geek – but I think that this might be very educational for the wee 6 year old and way better than Barbie.com!

Final Decisions.

In Design, See on July 14, 2011 at 10:44 AM

A fine couple, we shall call them Mary and Steve, are in the final rounds of their project. Having moved from San Diego to the Great Northwest they have taken on a Ballard craftsman-ish style house and we have been working to make it their own. I have loved working with them every step of the way, as they are interesting as people, have a great sense of humor, and aren’t afraid to take some risks to make their home – theirs. We have done some fun things and will finish with a few more before it is all over. That said some final decisions are being made and I wanted to share with you some of the options as they are all quite fun!

The Hole:

Where once a giant furnace aptly named Hercules ruled, a man-cave deluxe will take it’s place. The 30×30″ iron grid cover that was it’s gateway is inconveniently located in the center of the living and dining room. Rather than patch the fir floors and cover the hole we are going to insert one of the following light transmitting covers:

A custom piece from Think Glass such as this:

A resin piece layered with something textural  like this (I especially like the popped bubble wrap, and then the x rays are quite interesting considering they were Public Defenders in their last lives)
from Fossil Faux Studios:


Or just a lightly colored resin like this:

Crazy Shit.

In See on May 3, 2011 at 1:36 PM

I love a good hunt. Give me a flea market, a random warehouse district, an hour on craigslist, or just send me to Cline’s Antiques. Just outside of Charlotte is this crazy man’s land. Acres of buildings, semi-truck trailers, and random piles of stuff. Signs, metal, salvaged doors, more chairs than you can imagine and in one corner a rocket launcher and a trailer full of amo. Seriously that was weird.

A little overwhelming to say the least. And if you plan on going, I recommend knee high rubber boots (snakes), work gloves and a headlamp.
