Sterling Baby Spoon

When it is no longer in use,
as eventually babies get larger, 
and need larger spoons,
this sterling fellow will be able to rest on the wall
in it's own hanger,
while it waits for the next baby.

This will be seen in person
and for sale

Proof prints

Finally proofing this one.
Testing out some papers.
A larger Kitakata from Hiromi is giving me the best print.
Paper is a little thinner than the Kitakata of the smaller size that I expected to be printing upon,
but the image kept growing 
and now I"m needing to find another paper 
that works for the kind of cutting I do.

Woodblock in progress

Due to my mental/emotional battle with a saddening world.
I seem to have packed this with a world into which I would escape.
Having simply run out of wood to cut, I guess it's time to get it ready to print.

In only a few more days, I will have the first batch of TICK teeShirts!
White on Black, Next Level brand shirts. 
I've only ordered what people signed up for, and a few extra.
Reorders will take about ten days.
They're going to be great!
Want one?
 Contact me.


I got sidetracked...and drew up a necessary billboard.
It's 25 feet long,
and seen from highway 18/151
as you drive west,
on your right/north side of the road,
shortly before the Dodgeville  Exit.

it's lit up at night!!
It's just one of many that are popping up all over the Driftless Area.


Bee Bracelets and a Cat Spoon

I'm starting to show a little of what I do
The Bee Bracelets were in the April Issue.

In the May issue,
the Cat Spoon #1 was shown:
The cat is copper.
It is 4 1/8" long,
1 7/8" wide at the bowl,
and just short of an inch deep.
It measures 1 tablespoon of water.
Most all my chasing is one-of-a-kind.
My work does not translate well as molded castings, 
unless I specifically aim for that result.
I'm also making unique wall mounted holders for these things,
so they can show off, 
and not be lost in a kitchen equipment drawer.
