Ever since I was a kid, I've always enjoyed making things: folded paper, posters, model cars and rockets, bookends in shop class, cabinetry, furniture, sets and props, special effects, animation, product prototypes, minatures, sculptures, industrial design, etc., etc. It's all been fun and satisfying. At sixty-four years young, I'm nowhere near finished—especially with this new Shapeways shop of mine.
The shop name I chose comes from L. Ron Hubbard's definition of space: "viewpoint of dimension." Very useful and interesting once you examine it and see for yourself if it's true for you or not.
As an artist, I'll be creating many different "spaces" in the forms of my products offered here. I'm starting out with jewelry: simple and beautiful designs which I hope will be of broad appeal and desirable at least enough to be purchased by many. Of course, I invite your comments and requests so as to incorporate and/or provide a number of them.
My first product, "StarRing", was inspired by this year's Independence Day celebration. I've always loved geometry and have constructed many regular 5-point stars over the years. It's a classic shape, evocative of so much, but mainly of the stars of our beloved national flag.
I was born in 1950, the year of our nation's 50th state, Hawaii, and the flag's new union jack with its 50 stars. I've always felt good about that. During Viet Nam, I was stationed at NAS Barber's Pt. on Oahu, and spent my four-year tour of duty in our beautiful Aloha State.
