stuart heys

I few months ago, a gentleman by the name of Stuart Heys contacted me. I meant to make a blog post back then, but I was knee deep in the semester and things were hectic. Things are still hectic, but I'm trying to get back on the blogging bandwagon to keep the momentum going (sorry Eric!).

Anyway, Stuart's work is AWESOME. I absolutely love his wire bending machines and all of this work is phenomenal. I also loved the images above (from Stuart) of him moving out of his studio and into a new studio. ...and my wife thought my studio move was bad...  I hope Stuart doesn't mind that I posted part of his message to me as I thought this might give the blog readers some insight on him and his work:

Hi Frankie-

My name is Stuart Heys and I ran across your blog sometime last year and continue to keep up with it. We share at least a few common interests which is why I'm getting in touch. 

My background is in mechanical engineering/robotics and for the past 11 years I've done mostly solo consulting work out of my own machine shop in Brooklyn, everything from robotic vehicles for NASA to furniture and jewelry. I've always been drawn to craft and process, often more so than the final result of the work. My interest in craft is only increasing as I get older while my interest in high technology and commodity products is disappearing....
