out from under the backlog
I've more or less finally got completely up-to-date on my orders, so now I get to create new things again. One new light that was part of the order backlog was a plant stand with an illuminated top. After a couple of false starts I decided on a simple rectangular column of aluminium and painted wood with a translucent top. I think it came out quite respectably. It's about 3 inches (7.6cm) tall and the light source is an LED.
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.
