We Need Help – Please Back Our IndieGoGo To Move Our Studio & Rescue Shelter

watson-yawn

We're working artists, accomplished in imagery, wood, carbon fiber and blown glass. We also run a rescue shelter for abandoned, orphaned and abused kitties who have come to us asking for help; providing them with a home, rehabilitation, needed medical attention ... and love. It's been rewarding and sometimes heartbreaking, but well worth every second and every penny. All of that is in danger...

Our Police Box Fridge – Refrigerate! Refrigerate!

police-box-fridge800

All work and no play dulls the mind. For Halloween, Joy thought that it would be a great idea to dress up our refrigerator as a parody on a Police Public Call Box. It's a French Door, bottom roll-out freezer style, so the double door design of a Police Box fits right in. How to make it happen?

Such a Thing as Crappy Clients?

What makes a client crappy? These days, you'd think any client would be welcome, especially for artists who have seen their markets dry up quicker than most "needed" commodities.  For a "starving artist", any client is a good client. Right? Well, no. There are some clients that are just bad people, and they want to inflict their sorrow/curse on everyone they deal with. This is especially hard for an artist to take. Artists tend to be more emotional, more committed to their work, and much less to think that it's "Only Business, Nothing Personal" when it comes to anything related to their creations.

Spherical Magic & The Basin Complex Wildfire – Days 76+

1/25/2009 2:35 AM

After preparing to save the studio from destruction, it appears now that we only saved it for the banks. Shortly following the above journal, that you may want to read first, it became widely known that the economy was tanking. We're in the midst of a cascade failure that, unless something positive happens really soon, will cost us our studio and the two large sculpture commissions still in process because we won't have anywhere to work; let alone the funds to complete them.

Fire’s “Over”, but NOT Out

6-24_plumes

6-24_plumesWell, after more than 60 days looking at the thick smoke and breathing the ash, the skies have finally cleared. I'm able to go back out without a respirator on and actually do some work! Our projects are so so far behind, it's ridiculous, but we've been working very hard on them to catch up
