Every once in a while I stumble on a real gem.  Today I stumbled.  Just south of 44HQ in the good town of Somerville Ma is sculptor Anne Lilly’s workshop.  Apparently there was a recent open house – I missed this unfortunately but through the miracle of Flickr, I found her work.  Check it out for yourself-I love machines, machinery and her attention to detail, craftsmanship and skill really hit a chord with my design sensibilities.  So simple, so elegant and man if they just don’t beat to their own tune.

Up above is a favorite (it’s tough-they all are my favorite).  Check out that play with negative space.  The form ever changing but has a consistent visual motion.  My hunch: RADNESS ABOUNDS.

How cool would it be to see these things with graphite tips counter sunk on the ends drawing on paper? Thinking out loud here. They’re perfect as they are naturally. Enjoy kids.
