Nupenny loves you

And I love Nupenny.
Over the last half-year, I've been in intermittent conversation with a unique artist in America, Randy Reiger, creator of the mythical, poetic, nostalgic "NuPenny" series of sculptures, installations and ephemera. His work is quite brilliant and anyone interested in my work will probably find his appealing too, albeit in a very different way. Have a look...

Photo-essay on the NuPenny toystore.

Not much to report. I've been in the workshop experimenting with making settings by actually scanning the stones in the digital scanner and then milling them out of wax for casting. Photographs soon.
