Not cool, I’m supposedly on a deadline.

Went right for the Chris Ray image.

Thanks John,

Years ago I used the local library frequently, now with google, no need. Am writing a new publication and however trivial the subject, Google has an answer, I like technology second to pro football.

Years ago…early-mid 80’s…my mother (widow) dated Bernie Petlock (widower) for a number of years. Bernie was a designated “Pennsylvania State Treasure” as a sculptor and taught art in Philadelphia. At some point in the early internet years, I noticed that Chris Ray was also from Phila. and made contact w/him as his “Mansect” series interested me. We had some good conversations, even though he was not a fan of Bernie and where he was coming from (not current or forward thinking according to Chris). I was impressed with Ray as he seemed extremely focused and his work was exemplary, and an inspiration to me.

I did not think much of the significance of our contact as it was innoculous at the time, but it is certainly relavent now in my life as an artist/ blacksmith. I am thankful to ABANA for retaining his web page as it is still inspiring.

Found this while surfing Google “Images”

It’s something else if I was the artist I would have named it “Story Problem”.

Thanks Gene, I always wanted a 3D printer, to my knowledge there isn’t one locally that hires out.

Those forged pieces are incredible, don’t have a clue how they are made.

You just draw it up on the computer and the printer works from that file. I’m not sure how solid they are but Sparky from Forgemagic had one for rapid prototype development of plastic parts, the plastic was about 98% solid if I remember correctly.

If you go to the guy’s web site he explains how he does it.

I can’t want till OCP starts to sell them ;~)
