Things are starting to come in for the OOSA showcase exhibit at the William King Museum next month. More details soon.
Paint yer own voodoos are here! We have a small number available right now, and I’ll be putting them in the shop as soon as this is posted.
- 'Church' is the regal feline fellow, and stands roughly 4” tall, and about 2” across his base.
- 'Thinbone' is his tiny kitten companion. At about 2” long and 1.25” tall he's a shortie!
- 'Lawrence' is the odd man out here… well, he's a bird not a man, so I suppose he's the odd bird out. He's about 3” long and 1.5” tall.
These guys are cast resin from out original sculpts, and are available in 3 tones - white, medium grey & dark grey.

Kate MacDowell Amazing Porcelain Sculptures
Through her porcelain sculptures, artist Kate MacDowell explores our romantic notions towards the environment alongside the human propensity for destruction. Her pieces are responses to the damage we inflict upon our habitats including climate change, genetic modification of organisms, and pollution. Human figures and animals act as symbols of the natural world, humorously and sometimes disturbingly transformed into new creatures that share qualities across the boundary of species. Hand crafted and exceptionally detailed, her work is a traditional medium that takes on contemporary significance in an age of ecological degradation.
Kate MacDowell and her ghostly sculptures are beautiful and somewhat haunting examinations of the human relationship with nature. Each piece is molded by hand and then hollowed. Choosing porcelain for its pallor, luminosity, and ability to show texture, it also allows her to represent “fragility of natural forms in a dying ecosystem, while paradoxically, being a material that can last for thousands of years and is historically associated with high status and value.”

Friendly reminder Neon Genesis Evangelion happens next year. Let this serve as a reminder.
A dirty thunderstorm (also, Volcanic lightning) is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume. A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges, just as ice particles collide in regular thunderstorms.
