Things of Note

And an update via email from Graham Ogle...

  • I've been building a wide range signal generator from 500KHz through to 30MHz tunable in 1 Hz steps. This uses a cheap DDS (direct digital synthesis) module from ebay, an Arduino Pro Mini, a rotary encoder and an LCD. I'm currently building this into a simple direct conversion receiver for the HF frequency bands.
  • I've also set up a Meetup Group, Halkyn Amateur Radio and Electronics, for our radio club talks which will hopefully get new members and expand the range of interests covered. I'm giving a talk on the 25th of February, "Arduino and Picaxe microcontrollers".

Laser cut artwork produced here

Christine Toh has provided us with a lovely write-up of the laser cut, pop art inspired work that she's been producing recently in DoES. This goes into exhibition at the Bluecoat Display Centre (almost across the road from us) from 23rd January to 7th March 2015.

“Fleurs d’Amour” Collection / “Flowers of Love” Collection Medium: Acrylic or acrylic and wood, paper, laser cutting and digital printing.

I am a mixed media French artist living in Liverpool and have graduated from John Moores University in Fashion and Textile Design in 2008.

The development of my work is closely linked with the exploration of new processes and materials. The use of text and the use of colours have always been a strong inspiration and key elements of my work.

I learned last year how to use a laser cutter at DOES, a fantastic non-profit community organization supporting local entrepreneurs and makers in Liverpool. This had led to the development of a new set of work: the “Fleurs d’Amour” series or “Flowers of Love” series.

Those flower pendants have been designed from the word “amour“ (love) written in a circle as a message of eternity.

The flowers have been cut mainly in acrylic but birch wood has also been used and been combined with the acrylic to create the case. The word “amour” has been engraved in the center.

The red cord has been hand twisted and the piece is presented in a square kraft gift box.

Each piece is unique and individually made with attention to details.

A vibrant and dazzling colour palate has been chosen to inspire freshness, optimism, fun and the pendants will hopefully provide pleasure to wear.

Put together the “Fleurs d’Amour” will remind you of Andy Warhol’s iconic Flower Series designed in 1965.The reference to Andy Warhol emphasizes how pop art ideas are very much part of our everyday world today.
