Another batch of Bird on a Wire Houses have hatched. The first pair were grabbed by my three children, and were launched up and over a wire, directly above their Elementary School crossing.

I Yam What I Yam

I need a studio, well a place at least. A place where I can accumulate things, objects, drawings and half ideas and let them settle, inform each other and accumulate. One of the reason’s – I have a list – I need a studio, is that there are moments, where what’s to hand come into brilliant creative collision with a need. These moments and need come with such speed, that there’s no time for the projects to get ‘Lost’, for second guessing, or time to polish. I cherish these moments, pursue them, remain vigilant and nurture, what I think are the optimal environmental conditions that bring them about. Hence I need a studio.

When these moments do come, I’m fantastically proud of them. Here’s one. I’m very proud. They make me smile. They were quick, very quick. I was a hero.

leave a comment »

 

The next twelve Bird on a Wire houses are on their way out. Johan took a pair from LA to Sweden. MaPa will take a second pair to Wales, but look for a spot in Cardiff. A third will be on their way to Juicy and N in Brighton.

And as for the frozen pictures above, these are up in in Utah. Thanks to Jim and Shawn for the beautiful images. Beautiful. Very beautiful.

Good and Fast, but not so Cheap.

with 3 comments

20090814_00

Thanks to all for the very nice comments and inquires as to buying one of the GFC Triangles. Unfortunately, as seems to always be the case, getting something made, in the small volumes to meet the current small demand, is not so cheap. To get them manufactured (beyond the current ‘by hand and machine and favour’ process) involves paying the tooling cost for a custom triangle die, which – just for reference – is roughly the same price as a new single speed mountain bike frame!  This is exactly why these are called called Lost Projects, it’s familiar territory for me.

But in order to maintain the momentum, and in an attempt to lower the cost of making these things, the wooden versions have evolved, and seem to be a bit of a hit. They just seem right in wood, as precise but a little more humble.

So hopefully, soon, some wooden version will be available for sale. In the meantime, if anyone knows of any potential ‘Angels of Lost Projects’, I’d be more than happy to hear from them.
