Please enjoy my smooth jazz and clever screen wipes.

I have availed myself of you kind offer and wish to profess my satisfaction, even given the inherent problems of appreciating the plastic arts through the medium of a website.

Those are cool. I love the unzippered rocks. Neat contrast.

Ok, not in the art ballpark but something similar in terms of contrasts in stone from Carruth Studio: peas in a pod, pickled asparagus, Mrs. Maple.

Don't mind if I do. Cool post.

Done and done. That sweater on a hanger is a mind-blower.

Ever have that experience, where you work on an artistic concept for a long time ... say, about three years - and in one horrible, crushing moment someone reveals to you another artist doing the same thing way, way better than you'll ever be able to do it?

Yep. Sucks.

Oh my god I love that zippered rock full of rocks. I want one!

Shells. Full of shells. Even better.

I liked them and thought they were clever. Then I got to the last one-- the book containing the key and the little house-- and it completely floored me. Can't put it into words, but yes. That's it.

Very awesome, thank you. I might try to make myself one of the simple trays if I get motivated with my dremel tool.

Much better than the average MeFi art post. Too bad about the soundtrack, though.

Yeah-- but at leas there's a way to mute it (bottom of the page.)

The stone shirts remind me of Grinling Gibbons's limewood cravat.
