This weekend ampersand will have another round of wear down in Homer, Alaska. The Brunnell Street Arts Center is hosting the IGCA Object Runway show. Should be a fun time.
Some great photos done by Clark Mishler of the event. Cute photo of Sarah and Charlee - No. 6 and a nice one of the dress No. 69. Too bad Charlee got a bit tired … will have to get some photos of her in her dress.
Putting final touches on my entry into object runway. It is definitely in the experimental category. & (ampersand) is playing with uniting forms, in a graphical, sculptural way. This event is definitely going to sell out – buy some tickets now for the event on Sat, Feb. 6.
I am getting my sewing machine warmed up … and working on some sketches for this very fun event happening in February. I guess the judge is from this season Project Runway – Christopher Straub.

And take some pictures of it with the illumination.
I am working on a little mobile type sculpture to fill our ten foot wall space. The top will use an old bike rim and rotate. Letters will be clustered onto it — and revolve. I am hoping to have it done in a week or so. Stay tuned.
Okay we bought the bike. And it is one fast single speed. Alaska Design Forum was selected (out of a hat) to be one of the four recipients of the profits from the Mayor’s Charity Ball. Frost Produkt, from Norway generously donated the bike to ADF. Jan and Sondre Ustrad, the two brothers that started Frost lectured in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. Great guys — doing some really nice work.
