We talked about them before, in fact they sat down for an interview. The Scarf above, available from their Etsy.com store, is called Verdi and shows a selected measure by the composer.

Spantastic is a spanning competition that takes place in Technology & Ecology III at Otis College of Art and Design.
Well, it didn't go so well. This is Barbara and my laser cut bridge. We came in 3rd out of 4... So sad:(
Shown in the top pic is our super-cut instructor Greg Kochanowski.
The Second pic shows (left to right) April Osterhues, Leah Daschbach, and Zhivar Afshar.

From what I can tell there is etching and the leather is also cut and inlaid with dark suede. So cool. See more by clicking-the-pic.

I while back I created this "chair" called the ANNEX for the AIA Chair Affair competition - I didn't win. It was featured on ReadyMade where you can read more about it. I reticently made a new laser cut Masonite seat to replace the cardboard one which wasn't strong enough (but conformed to the Chair Affair rules) and it is going to be featured at the OBJCT GALLERY in January - I'll keep you posted.

Not totally sure how it works, but I like it. It seems to be a topographical place mat holding a plate, spoon, knife, and fork. See more by clicking-the-pic or go to karakola.com.

Apparently it's a chair designed by Office da.
Sorry about the lack of post. It's finals for the next 2 weeks and I think I am just getting over H1N1.

Jannaca sent me a link to her site - a divers mix of jewelery and art (if there is a difference between the two). Above is some of her laser cut paper jewelery - I think what sets her apart from others is her thoughtful use of color - it really is stunning. Enjoy!

Portugal. the Man - It's Complicated Being A Wizard, originally uploaded by brianstowell.
Quoted from from flickr:
The record was pressed on 333 copies of blue and 667 on black. Both featuring the gorgeous laser etching of the artwork on the b-side. I also enjoy that the b-side is labeled as playing at 6 6/6 RPM.

Keys and clock parts - they are calling it Steampunk, I am so sick of that - but see Sybaratic's Etsy shop.

Fill in the blank. I'm not sure what to say - nothing positive. I'm underwhelmed by my studio class and I'm looking forward to next semester knowing full well that it will be more of the same - and less time to focus on TLC - but I will do my best - so for the infrequency of my posts.
PS. I'm in the pic...

This is a macro shot of an image I made using CNC technology. Hand-stained paper is cut with a laser and then mounted between layers of glass.

Made with laser cutter, made without glue, held together with pegs, etched lines, made of 2 layers for the paddle and 2 more for the handle.
