So my camera...not so good. None of my color came out very nice. I took pictures of nice color, but you can't really tell that well. I played around w/ the flash but that seemed to help pretty minimally.

My really really green coat.

I liked the browns and creams in this teabag

This apple is actually very pretty shades of red and green.

A purple vase?
I like the subtle greenish brownish yellowish thing going on.
Orange and light blue, but it looks white.
Creams and browns?
Yellows and oranges
Really bright blue and green. See Karen's shoes for futher detail.
I really like bright colors.

This wood looked much much richer

That's supposed to be really red.


Ok so I went to today and they had some pretty cool stuff. Unfortunaetly, I'm having trouble with their website. Ther's no option to copy or save their images? Is anyone esle having trouble with that?

So even though I don't have pictures, I really like the lamps and necklace by Arik Levy. It says it's made from epoxy and there's all these holes for the light to come through.

I also like the lamps by Strand and Hvass made from nylon. They''re called chaos and they remind me of twigs.

There's also a foral wall lamp by Lionel Theodore Dean that's beautiful. It's foral and plays with shodow on the wall and made from nylon.

I was also having trouble with getting information out of their webpage. I cliekd on designer information and it was blank. Is there a trick I'm missing?

I'll google them later see what I can find. Sorry about the lack of pictures. Much less interesting this way.

AAR for Droog

-I think the Droog mentality was there. It interacted with the user (interchangeable buttons). It was also decorative but functional.
-I incorporated the new techniques (solder inlay, etching, roll printing, lamination inlay)
-I made schedules for myself and followed them fairly well.

-I felt like my craftsmanship in some areas could have been better (getting off the solder behind the hooks better; the loop was not fully soldered by the first day of crit).
-Some of the mechanisms were a little crude.
-The lamination was not soldered on one part, which became apparent after dapping.

What Ifs:
-I would have tried to get my idea thought up sooner to have more time to work.
-If I had more time to work, I would have focused more on the little things with craftsmanship because they really do make the difference.

10 Favorite Words


Not all of these are really my top favorites, and I know I'm missing some, but I feel like these words are cool enough to at least be listed. I'll add the others as I think of them.
Also, by making this list, I discovered that I really like words that begin w/ F I guess? Good to know...
