  11. 13. <ul><li>The images in my artwork are inspired by shapes and patterns found in nature. Curves, spirals, ribbons of color and texture motivate me most. I prefer using recycled items, things with history, in my work. Stones and shells from my favorite places; hand crafted stained glass vibrant with color; strips of metal and leather all find their way into my work. My enjoyment is in the process of gathering, assembling and sharing. I love mosaic because each piece, each tessera, is touched as it is put in place, and then when it is grouted and polished, the mosaic is touched again as a whole entity. </li></ul><ul><li>45 Tinker Street Woodstock, NY 12498 ph: 845-532-4467 [email_address] </li></ul>

  15. 18. <ul><li>299 Western Avenue </li></ul><ul><li>Brattleboro, VT 05301 </li></ul><ul><li>Call 800-728-8207 </li></ul>Featuring: Dr. Quark or Hector von Vector Born to teach, Ted was certified to teach chemistry, physics, and math after majoring in Electrical Engineering at the University of Vermont. Prior to completing his B.S., Ted started teaching mime, clowning, juggling, wire walking, and stilts to neighborhood kids during the summer. He graduated from the Ringling Clown College in ‘86, toured with the circus for two years, and was honored to return to Clown College in ‘94 as a member of their faculty. Upon leaving the circus, Ted undertook a short-lived (5 year) classroom teaching career where he found himself teaching Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Physics, AP Physics, Algebra, and Physical Science in Maine, Connecticut, and Virginia. In each of these schools, while he was there, the students also had the opportunity of joining an extra-curricular Circus Club. Eventually and inevitably the melding of circus and science lead to the birth of Slapstick Science. Ted’s strength’s in circus skills are acrobatics, pass juggling, unicycling, wire work, and equilibristics, but anything that permits him to fly is worth trying. He unicycles about 6 miles per week, and loves skiing, rock climbing, and kayaking. His favorite color is abstract.
