Oh, thats too bad - well, some other time. Thanks anyway. I found some directions on how to build a theremin online - looks fun. Yeah, i'll look for that other doc about sheldrake. Sadly i can't be at the opening, i'll be out of town in San Francisco. I really wanted to be here but this trip was planned a while ago. We'll have to meet up some other time. Cheryl is handling the music i believe - but that raymond scott guy is quite a character. Very suitable for the opening. well, talk to ya later. oh and during my trip i'll keep an eye out for your wandering amp.

Hi ken,

I got a sneak peak at the work for the upcoming show...so i saw yours. Love it! Very well done & how it's connected to the morphogenetic field theory is brilliant. I first heard of that on Ideas "how to think about science" series. It certainly seems plausible. Hey, someone said you had a theremin? You should bring it and play it at the opening. Anyway, just wanted to compliment you on your work & for being so cool. Hope to chat more sometime.

Hello Ken...I never had the pleasure of being in any of your classes but yes, you were still at OCAD when I was there 94 to 98. I was one of the mature students (being older than 35 at the time).
Thank you for accepting my friend request.
I am presently trying to find my way back into the Art Jewellery Community. Not that I ever left or stopped making jewellery, I just was not as involved as the younger students. I feel it is time to stop daudling and start getting my art noticed.
I received a quantity of silver non monetary coins, 50.5 grams each, 5 cm in diameter and 3-5 mm thick, with the request to design some jewellery from them (by the giver). I posted some of my first "deconstructions" on my page that are in process. I think it gives some insight into my design process, rather than just showing the finished project. I am trying to have some fun with the designs I am cutting. I tried to forge one and discovered I need an anvil and bigger hammer. A rolling mill would be beneficial too. All in time.
Have a great week.
Frances

Toronto is a different place then I've ever lived, I haven't decided to settle here yet but its fantastic while I am in school.
I just finished my final project pendant for my first year, hopefully I can post a picture of it soon! Great new pieces!

Hi Ken,

I have the CD written it is in my possession at the trunk show I am doing at Shao-Pin's. He doesn't have PhotoShop on his computer so I will size them down and send them when I get home tonight.
Which email address do you want me to use? I am going to pick up some custom work from John tomorrow morning and I'll give him the CD and you can get it from him.

We met a few summers ago when I was trying to decide if I should move here for schooling, you and your wife had me over to your home for balaclava to see your studio and designs! It was a wonderful time! I think Paul Leathers may have put us in contact. Thank you again!
