Doing it right at Perelman #artsplash #philadelphiamuseumofart. (at Perelman Building)
Teeth (real human)
The beginning… This is my first time making jewelry of any sort, so I imagine its going to take a lot of problem solving and trouble shooting to figure things out… Im watching a lot of youtube tutorials to get an understanding of how to fasten and connect wire, as well as what tools to use. Very, Very Excited.
The future Printmaking Facility with sam on the right, and the future Photo Cyclorama Wall on the left.
Moven up slowly.
Altered up a tool of mine. I took a Japanese handle V Gauge which I loved for the thicker grip around the point, and added a the European ball, palm handle. I fasten them together with two screws and finished it by coating them in Sugru to give the handle a softer feel and prevent blisters.
Doing little things here and there while I carve text out.
Almost ready to make some jewlery. 54 human molars sitting in a peroxide bath to make them all pearly white.
At midnight I carve words and letters backwards because im (a) possessed (print maker)

Below the building.
Today I took the Behind the Scenes tour at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. One of the great perks of my job. More pictures to come…

"In all human affairs there are efforts, and there are results, and the strength of the effort is the measure of the result. Chance is not. “Gifts,” powers, material, intellectual, and spiritual possessions are the fruits of effort. They are thoughts completed, objects accomplished, visions realized.
The vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart - this you will build your life by, this you will become.”
James Allen AKA THE MAN.
Almost finished my two wood burnings for a show im in this first friday with Brendan from HIVE 76
These blocks will actually be speakers! Check this video out of one I made awhile back
Doing some late night wood burning.
Nothing satisfies me more then making something I had no idea how to do yesterday. Im very lucky. I definitely learn and work slower then others, but I use my time well. Im not afraid to ask questions and certainly not afraid to ask for help. I try my best to reciprocate what Im given by so many amazing people. If it weren’t for them I couldn’t do ANY of this. All I want to do is create a positive example that proves “Thought allied fearlessly to purpose becomes a creative force”
I cant wait till the next stage where the frame work comes into shape.
Ill try to keep posting :)
