I love the Etsy idea ... you make it, you sell it! It suits me because I have always had MANY interests in most areas of my life, including what I make!

In college the art form I spent the most time on was painting (visual art -- I was an English major and am a writer and published author), but had an interest in jewelry since way back in high school (they even offered a small course in wax carving/lost wax method which I took)! I sculpt, design "items" and more.

In recent times, however, I have concentrated a large part of my efforts info making a line of science fiction and "geeky" items... a lot, but not all of it "retro tech;" these are items that look the way we THOUGHT they would years ago. Think robots or ray guns from maybe the 1930's, and flying saucers from the 50's! Then of course there is steampunk from the 1800's! COpper, bolts, steam powered…

And again most, but not all, with a "material twist;" they tend to be made mostly out of wood! And I keep a rustic, olde worlde workshop look to a lot of them too -- it depends on my view of each particular piece.

I also spend a lot of my time expanding my very popular line of wedding cake toppers; a lot of robots but others as well! I do a lot of custom work (toppers or otherwise) -- I can make a small change or create ANYTHING (and I do mean anything) from scratch, for YOU!

I must bury myself in the "Builder's Studio" and get to work; thanks for looking!
