People ask me: why aren’t you making a living building and selling your Circuit Board Lamps?  The answer is as with many creative projects: time, money and market visibility.  It’s also a matter of having a substantial body of work to show and individual pieces that are practically priced.  I spent a lot of my resources figuring out fabrication procedures, building a handful of prototypes and getting responses from the public.  Now it’s time to move into the next phase, to put the accumulated information into practice, to make a full time investment in production and marketing.    Take a moment to peruse the flickr link to see more of the completed sculptures.
