Blowing for Home; Going Home

Lasercut and engraved plexiglass hunting horn with yellow enamel.

I recently adopted a foxhound from Eastpoint, FL where failed hunting hounds are notoriously left in Tate’s Hell State Park. Penny, my rescue hound, was lured out of the forest with potato chips and brought to the Franklin County Humane Society. We are learning to communicate and this is a prototype for the hunting horn we will use to call her home.

The Best of

The Best of

Lasercut and engraved plexiglass replica of Best of the Beach Boys, Vol. 2 released in 1967.

A saccharine birthday gift for my older brother, Kurt.

As young military kiddos, we spent countless afternoons soaking in the San Diego sunshine in our dad’s topless jeep listening to this cassette.

Exercises in Sharing (Taking Care of the Sharp Parts)

I silver soldered my favorite tweezers together after a particularly not-so-pleasant-but-so-pleasant-at-the-time manic spike.
