on a hot streak light and sculpture
Once I made the initial table, I had to make new items to display on it, so I made a new table lamp and a "thing of purpose" out of acrylic. I used an LED in the table light; they are pretty much my standard now although they do take a extra hour or so of work to create. It does add a lot of freedom to the way I can design and build the lights, so it's worth it.
I've working with miniatures professional since 1998, focusing on original modern work especially lights and furniture. I also do film/book themes,federal/Georgian and other period rooms or just about anything else a client dreams up.
Before I started miniatures full time I ran a small consulting company (database and system design) and before that I was a policy analyst for the provincial government and - yes - before that a psychologist and before THAT a teacher.
I started my post secondary education in engineering,changed to psychology and ended up doing graduate working first in psychology and later in administration. All of which ties in DIRECTLY to miniatures - I think.
