That's what I was thinking of when I created this shadow box of a mechanicule. Cast glass, with an aluminum frame, in a formal wooden box:
Here's the deal. In the process of putting this box together, I dropped the cast glass piece. It shattered on the upper left corner, and a wedge of the bottom right corner broke clean. I was so angry, I couldn't curse properly. I sounded like "Shi-shuh-, fa-fe-fuh- Ga-gi-ga na- ki- gi- a- guh-". I was that angry.

One of my student aides was in the room, absolutely petrified. I finally managed "GET OUT!". I think maybe I sobbed for about a second, and then carefully picked up all the pieces I could find. The shattered corner was a wash. The rest I managed to glue together. But I cant' sell this piece now. It's damaged goods.
Oh, maybe I can, but I have to point out that the glass is broken.
Other than that, I got all the Kickstarter rewards pretty much done.
|I know the frame looks crooked. It isn't!|
All I have to do is set up the banking deposit thingie with Amazon, put together a video, and I can gewt my proposal over to Kickstarter. What did I say it would be ready? End of Feburary? By St. Paddy's Day? Hmm. Maybe shoot for Memorial Day?
