Good Things From Richard Carter Studio

I cant explain , within this context, the energy that evolves around Richard Carter and his studio. I have had the opportunity to work there, and I highly value the experience. There is a deeply rooted aesthetic there, that instills high standards in craft and design. I have been invited to participate in the exhibition " Richard Carter Studio- past and present"
at, The Quick silver Mine Co., n Forest ville, CA. Check out this press release with the Bohemian here

Mold and Interior

Here I want to show the positive and the negative views of the mold making process. To grasp the concept of parts and undercuts it helps to be able to see the space around the object. On the left is my minilith form carved from a solid block, and on the right the interior of the completed mold, I wish I could walk into a cavern like this.

Minilith for Monuettes

For the last couple weeks I have been carving this block of plaster in-between other projects. I think it is turning into a coral encrusted berg of stone, moss, and crystal emerging from below, or maybe just a base for some other forms to play on.

Rattus Norvegicus Rex

One of our latest accomplishments at the Non Fiction Design Collective is this chandelier using our collaborative efforts. Rapid prototyped porcelain rats hang by their tails clustered within acorns. Glass beads adorn the light, while also held by the little rodent teeth. Non Fiction knows rat kings..
