Gocco Supplies and Links

23 May

In the Etsy community forum, I frequently see folks looking for well priced supplies for their Gocco presses that are available domestically (quicker and less expensive shipping…internationally there are many supplies if you are willing to wait…)…

Here’s where I get my supplies:

Northwood Studios.  The owner/operator is Judy Funk who is a Gocco-expert and a pleasure to do business with.  She is informative and prompt and a nice person… Her pricing is fair (and better than many other sources out there)… She also occasionally has used machines and some neat gadgets available… As she has so much Gocco experience, she can usually answer any questions and often has great solutions available (like a great non-gocco branded screen cleaner) that only experience could have brought….

Anyway, give her a visit…

To see what Gocco can do, Flickr has a couple of Gocco photo groups… Here’s “Gocco”

A general, “What Is Gocco?” is available at savegocco.com

Happy Friday and Happy Printing!

Wiped…

2 Apr

Yikes. I am just wiped out today.

Boyo was saying he wanted more sleep when he was getting ready for school this morning. He never does that.  He’s like I used to be…When he’s up, he’s up…No going back to bed…

Something just feels off in the universe… Since the time change… Wondering if there is anything more to that….

Hugs all around… Going to go sit on the porch with some of this tasty tea and soak up the sun….

Magic Hour.

In another lifetime I worked with film and I am still obsessive about the glow of magic hour…

I try to bring that sort of light to my metalwork, at every opportunity. I love contrast. I love making, by hand and with only a couple of tools, thrones for vintage plastic bits… Glass is lovely as well, and occasionally I do work with glass, but I’m forever in love with the jewels of our grandmothers and bringing them back into the light…

I love dark metal and vintage Lucite in various degrees of translucence… This piece is a matte finish deep tangerine. In this setting, with this contrast, it actually reflects light and appears to be lit, just a bit, from behind…

It glows.

Just like the earth during the warm flirtation of the sun’s angle at magic hour….

Magic Hour will arrive shortly, in my shop.
