Amazing. Sculptor Keith Holamon creates amazing work on a huge custom lathe.
I have had the pleasure of doing a little work for the amazing Lindsey Adelman Studio. They created two fantastic pieces that needed a little turned walnut and for some crazy reason they asked me to do it.
The Shady Side Candlesticks
Turned walnut candlesticks with handmade fungus cast in brass.
Simple turned walnut cylinders house standard LED bulbs suspended by powder coated tubing and custom links. Inspired by the glassblowing tool called a chuck used to make our Bubbles.
I have the good fortune to be lending a hand on an incredible installation: Lumarca.
Lumarca is a volumetric display that allows viewers to experience digital animations in true three dimensional space. The video does not do it justice, the effect is pretty amazing in person. And this January 12th you can come and see it at Eyebeam.

This is by far the most I’ve made of anything before. Images of the build process below:
I’m so excited about this. Please check out the store and the other designers as well.
This is amazing. The good stuff starts around the 1:15 mark. Barefoot turning, unbelievable.

I love this project, Dentsu London is a creative agency that created a pair of wallpaper scissors. One half was hand crafted in the traditional way by scissor makers Ernest Wright & Son, the other was 3-D printed (with help from Jamie McClellan). The coming together of the old and the new is fantastic.
I saw this fantastic drip painting on the sidewalk at Berry St and N 5th in Williamsburg. No idea who the artist is, I wish I could make paintings like this.
Side note: this is kind of what I think Jay Gatsby would like.
I love a good design challenge. The folks over at Hendzel and Hunt gathered some great designers and asked them to create a machine capable of playing an Edison Bells record in one day. If that wasn’t enough, each group had a budget of only £30 to source materials from the surrounding area, and was not allowed to step anywhere near digital technology.
The fantastic results can be seen in the video below:

I love this kind of stuff. There should be a TV show like this, something similar to Iron Chef or Top Design, only with builders/designers/makers instead of chefs and interior designers.
