This year’s World Steam Expo was a great show filled with adventure and friends. Personally, my booth did well and I made some new friends and connections as well. I sold two of the smaller airship sculptures that I did especially for this event and the larger airship, the Anastasia, was well received.
I got the chance to speak personally to Captain Robert Brown of Abney Park fame, who by the way, just released a new album, and I chewed the fat a bit with John Strangeway of Penny Dreadful Productions, better known as Steampunk Boba Fett.
My kids joined in the fun and added some accessories to their costumes like a great corset from Ties that Bynde and a hat from Blonde Swan.
I met a funny, gregarious and talented harp maker named Jeff Lewis of Lewis Creek Instruments and Harps. Jeff just had a big write up in the Livingston County Press & Argus a few weeks ago.
Now comes the task of preparing for next year’s WSX and I already have ideas for new sculptures and other cool additions to my booth. Stay tuned as I post progress on the new stuff and tell your friends to subscribe and join in!
