The Inspiration – “Where Did The Idea Come From?
Marji, in 1973 with her bicycle chain sculpture. I came late to the world of art. My early years were spent in the realm of science and engineering. My father was an engineer who worked on some of the early jet engines and we were both fascinated by the space program. It was the 60’s and every launch was a big event.
One of my best friends from high school was a sculpture major at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. We started trading visits frequently and I was exposed to the artistic creative process from the inside for the first time. I saw it as another type of creative problem solving, not all that different from my advanced physics courses but with a completely different goal. One of Marji’s projects was a very large wooden chain and gear sculpture. It moved when you turned a crank. I was very excited by this piece, it showed me a side of art that was totally new to me. I had lots of ideas for other projects she should start but she just gave me one of her smiles and moved on to other projects.
Another machine like sculpture by Marji – mechanical but static. Part of learning to make art is learning to see in images. Marji’s sister and roommate had a black and white darkroom set up in their apartment and taught me how to use it. The exposure to art and photography started me seeing the world differently. To this day, I find art and science to be closely linked. Shortly after college I married my best friend and art teacher. 40 years and we’re still learning from each other.
We built a family, a house, and a few businesses together. There have been adventures along the way but fortunately, they have been the kind with happy endings. My first job out of college was as a database computer programmer. This was the era of stacks of cards and reams of green and white lined computer paper. To fill the time I started doodling ideas for small toys that moved. Our apartment was filled with the stuff of creativity including, eventually a primitive wood shop in the second bedroom.
On my way home from work I could detour to a large wood shop with a dumpster full of wonderful wood scraps. I started building some of my doodles and eventually decided to try selling them at a local craft show. To my delight and surprise they sold. I didn’t feel the same about mine. I left after about 9 months so I could explore my toy ideas more fully. We found an apartment in half of an old farm house where the real attraction was the abandoned milk house out back.
