    Abstract Art is art that is not an accurate representation of a form or object. This representation can be differed in many ways including the shape, color, and form. The artist takes the object and then either simplifies it or exaggerates it using these things.
    There are many different abstract styles. There are three forms of abstraction that really stands out: Cubism, Neoplasticism, and Abstract Expressionism. There are many abstract artists who painted in these styles, however there are some that are more well know in a particular field than the rest. For example, the some of the most famous cubist were Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. One of the best examples of Neoplasticism is Piet Mondrian . Two of the most famous examples of Abstract Expressionism are Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.


      Neoplasticism is the belief that art should not be the reproduction of real objects, but the expression of the absolutes of life. To the artists way of thinking, the only absolutes of life were vertical and horizontal lines and the primary colors. To this end neoplasticisist only used planar elements and the colors red, yellow, and blue. The neoplastic movement happened in the 1910's and the two main painters of this movement where Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg.

        I.Differential element to....


        1. Differential element of any length to semi-infinite plane. Plane containing element and receiving semi-infinite plane intersect at angle t at edge of semiinfinite plane.

        2. Differential planar element touching any convex one-, two-, or three-dimensional surface at tangent angle l.

        3. Differential planar element to finite parallel rectangle. Normal to element passes through corner of rectangle.



          1998 Showcase Award Winner of the international audio/video furniture competition in both categories. Design and Engineering, at the CES'98 in Las Vegas. Parallel is the only platform in the Audio Design Collection where you can place the equipment next to each other. It is ideal for those audiophiles, that prefer a lower frame, but still need the option to fully suspend their equipment. It easily holds six shelves and offers all the options that made Novus the award winner of the international audio furniture competition at the CES'98. The Novus-Series includes the models: Basis, Parallel, Rectangle and Novus.
          Also shown (below) is a custom Parallel, triple-wide, offering additional space for the newly purchased components. We have custom built Parallel to hold 12 pieces of equipment, Plasma TV's, complete home theater systems,..... Whatever your needs are , we can make it happen.

                Spinning with a Top-Whorl Drop Spindle

                WARNING!!! Spinning reduces stress and promotes well being. It can also be habit forming and lead to obsessive behaviors such as, but not restricted to: caressing and hoarding all fibers; dying them with food colors and things from your garden or whatever you have laying about; spinning the fluffy bits of the weeds in your fields, the cotton wad in your vitamin bottles and even the lint from your dryer! Proceed with extreme caution!

                To learn to spin you will need:

                A drop spindle (these instructions are for top-whorl drop spindles)
                Carded or combed fiber prepared for spinning
                A length of yarn to use as a leader
                Drop spindles are primitive spinning tools, virtually the only spinning tool used until 1000 ad —the spinning wheel as we know it did not exist before the 1500’s. The drop spindle is still the primary tool used in remote locations throughout the world. It has become very popular among current handspinners in the last few years. If you find you love spinning, there are guilds all over the country where you can find fellowship, information and fun. The magazine Spin•Off, which is published quarterly by Interweave Press, Inc., 201 East Fourth Street, Loveland, Colorado 80537-5655, (970) 669-7672, is full of information about spinning and includes a list of spinning guilds every winter issue.

                Fibers prepared for spinning can be purchased at fiber shops around the nation. There are several that will mail order listed in this website, use this link to find them: Favorite Websites

                  Inkle Loom Plans?

                  I've seen these little guys on the web and decided to give it a try. However, there is NO WAY I'm gonna buy one when I have a wood shop at my disposal. The design looks uber simple, but I can't find a set of patterns for the ones that look like the Schacht or Ashford. I found a two-sided version, but I'm not thrilled with it. Plus, the instructions for warping it were hard to follow due to the poor picture quality.



                    The warp-weighted loom is one of the easiest looms to warp. Especially when compared to large floor loom with multiple sheds. These instructions presuppose a working knowledge of weaving and warping, but there is a brief glossary at the end of the article.

                    WARPING THE LOOM

                    Unlike table and floor looms, the warp-weighted loom does not have treadle-operated movable sheds and heddles. It is operated with a fixed shed and three shed sticks with hand-tied string heddles. You weave from the bottom to the top, rolling the finished fabric around the top beam as you go.

                    Before you start warping for the first time, make sure you have a rigid heddle about four inches wide. Rigid heddles are available from weaving and spinning supply shops and are not expensive. The warp for a warp-weighted loom has a 2” to 4” inch woven band at the top, this can be removed when the weaving is finished or kept as a decorative border.

                    As with most warping operations, a helper will make the job much easier and faster. A good choice for a first weaving project would be pearle cotton for the warp and weft. This material is easy to work with and does not require sizing. If you elect to work in wool you will need to size the warp and allow it to dry before you begin.



                      Problem: Evaluate the following arithmetic expression:
                      3 + 4 x 2

                      Solution: Student 1 Student 2
                      3 + 4 x 2 3 + 4 x 2
                      = 7 x 2 = 3 + 8
                      = 14 = 11

                      It seems that each student interpreted the problem differently, resulting in two different answers. Student 1 performed the operation of addition first, then multiplication; whereas student 2 performed multiplication first, then addition. When performing arithmetic operations there can be only one correct answer. We need a set of rules in order to avoid this kind of confusion. Mathematicians have devised a standard order of operations for calculations involving more than one arithmetic operation.

                      Rule 1: First perform any calculations inside parentheses.
                      Rule 2: Next perform all multiplications and divisions, working from left to right.
                      Rule 3: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.
