Another day at the office

I don't work in an office, it's really an unusual combination of building
spaces. All connected on the inside. On the outside it appears to be about
6 separate buildings, from different eras.

Introducing OWLBOT. An owl robot covered in layers of palladium leaf, some pure silver mesh wiring, and crystal clear ears for good radio reception.

Palladium is a cool metal, more expensive than gold and does some interesting things in the flame and in the kiln. It has an extremely high melting temperature, so it doesn't vaporise like gold or silver in my torch flame. It has kind of a matte finish but as you turn it in the light it reflects different metallic colours, like gold, green, blue and pink. It's cool.

I'm going to make a bunch of these owlbots and inscribe a series number in roman numerals on the bottom edge. This fellow is OWLBOT I

The Beginning

In the beginning there was an owl (bead), it was made of glass and many people wanted it. He may not seem much now but he was a start.

Maybe there's something about this fella that can go even further, maybe there can be enough owls for EVERYONE!

Since the first, there have been over 150 owls and a lot of progress. This is my website, which has lots of photos.
