New Year’s Resolution

In Design on January 26, 2013 at 3:55 PM

One of my promises to myself this year was to make sure to document and share the work I do. Thus I have been scheduling photo shoots like a mad woman as well as trying to find the right platform for a new website – something mobile friendly, easily updated by me or mine rather than a team of specialists etc. But for now I thought I would just start posting stuff willy-nilly to my blog.

Here are a couple of shots from Wednesday’s shoot.

Story: Cute family expecting their third daughter. The first two daughters are heading into their tween – teen years and the parents wanted them to be excited about bunking-up in the same room together. Here is a BEFORE shot of the room:

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…

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:

Check out this firms site – Commute – I saw the plaster wall medallion installation on Remodelista this morning and then have spent the last half hour pouring over their site.

Some things I need.

A rough layout idea for re-routing of utilities.

Art Basel Miami Beach – Part 1.

A few of my favorites – but PLEASE understand = the images of these pieces don’t do anything for them at all. The complexity and color is lost completely.

These are by Imi Hwangbo – they are amazing layers of mylar. Hand cut and layered from small to large – each a lacy and smaller version of itself. Each piece is made of between 18-35 sheets of the mylar and they flutter in the breeze showing the exacting hand of the artist. Beautiful and amazing.

These are the most beautiful paintings in person by Berliner Anne Neukamp. Oil and egg tempura, each so full of texture and subtlety that you can only see the genius of in person. They are large and I think she will someone to watch.

Brecker Beds.
