What does “Sweet Death” look like when displayed on a set of 25 story billboards in the middle of Times Square NYC?…something like this.

The detail is quite impressive on the rock candy. I actually molded real pieces of rock candy to achieve the proper surface variation. The lights bounces around these in a very dramatic way. It’s hard to believe they are not real.

Working on a color chart for a custom rock candy chandelier that will be 7 feet long and almost 3 feet in diameter. This is a busy month.

Woo Hoo! First mold just came out of the tank. I just love the look and feel of clear silicone. They are like little ghost images of baseballs…the baseball spirits are alive…

After creating a mold of my baseball, I cast about 180 of them to create 1 of 8 mother molds needed to produce all of the pieces. I turned each baseball several degrees to give the overall mosaic a bit more dimension when you look at it up close. Next step: pour some more silicone.

The next step in creating “The Face of Baseball” is making a silicone mold of this tiny baseball and prepare a mother mold to cast the 15,000+ needed for this project.

What do you when the fine folks at Movado ask you to create a custom portrait of Derek Jeter?  Well, you say yes of course and start by sculpting the tiniest baseball ever to use as the pixels.
