Reindeer Ornaments

Rather than make these and sell them, I decided to make them and give them away.  The design is over on inventables.com.

Pumpkin Hacking

Every Halloween, my hackerspace, NYC Resistor runs a workshop to hack pumpkins.  This is an image from one year, I tried to put Jack Nicholson’s character from The Shining, into my pumpkin.  It came out OK.

Gingermen at Inventables

So sometimes you make a charming design, and then you realize you don’t want to make 20 of them.  SOLUTION:  Let people make their own!  The original gingerman was made of 100% wool felt and sewn by hand.  After sewing up a few of these I realized I was destined for early arthritis if I made more.  So I changed the design to make these with wood.  The wooden version takes 5 minutes to sew, and folks can go download the pattern at Inventables.com.

Currant Delight!

Some years ago my mother planted red currants in the garden.  Anyone who has a currant bush will inform you that they grow like weeds.  The vine took over most of the rhododendron bushes next to the plant..

Experimental Textile Designs

In 2011-2012 there was a website that came about that offered people the ability to design and print a dress.  Unfortunately the founders didn’t have a real business model attached, but at least I got a dress made before they folded.  Here are a few designs for more dresses.  I had the spark pattern dress made.  The first image is of a fern leaf, which you then see on the subsequent dresses.

Final Poster for CooperType

This poster design was printed letterpress at Cooper Union and features samples of the final typeface I designed as part of their typography certificate program.  The typeface itself, called telesync was designed to read clearly on retina screen devices.

In 2012 I designed a lasercut wall out of cardboard and foam core for the Open Hardware Summit.  It was a fun project and has been reused a few times since.

Jeltone Goes to Beijing

In May 2012, I had the honor of travelling with a small toy piano to Beijing, China to participate in their first MakerFaire.  The piano was the brainchild of Ranjit Bhatnagar, Mimi Hui, and Catarina Mota, and myself. This was the follow up to much media exposure on the Jeltone after its creative-prize winning entry into the Gowanus Studio Jello mold-making competition in 2011. It was a fun trip!

Design for an Ice Hotel Suite

This is an idea that I developed for the ice hotel suites in Sweden.  The idea was developed around the theme of a popular (in America & in Sweden) candy fish.  You can view the proposal here.

Letterpress PLUS!

In October 2011 I made new business cards for myself.  This project was a combination of a great found material (blank letterpress embossed cards from ETSY) and having access to a laser.  All the lettering on these cottony cards was laser etched.

Mangrove Lamp

This was my first lamp design using the lasercutter at NYC Resistor.  Mangrove lamp is inspired by trees that put their roots in the water, and form one of the most important ecosystems in nature.  The perfect lamp for a child’s room.
