9-23-08 Show Preview

I got some shots from Dick White late last night showing the gallery almost set up. Click on the picture, or here, for a sneak preview.

9-20-08 Preparations

Here's a "Fly on the Wall's" eye view of the gallery being set up for the show. Bill Schran is moving so fast you can't even see him in the photo. I do think I spot my pieces as well as work from Bill Campbell, Ginny Conrow, Jamie (The Wizard of Clay) Kozlowski and Robert Hessler.

Bill asked me to give a presentation on heating element design. I spent a little time getting some samples to illustrate the concept of power density while the guys were making some for an order in the shop.
