Final thoughts on the SMV3 Project.


Bringing the SMV3 project to a close.

The SMV3 project is now complete, so it is time to take stock and reflect a little. The best way to do that in my opinion, is to allow a little time to tinker a bit at the end. Like all of my edition projects, it just wouldn't be right to bring such an interesting sculptural concept to a close without having a bit of fun with color using some of the spare parts from production.

There are always a few spare parts, but in this case, the production run for the SMV3 went so smoothly, and I scrapped so very few parts, I had more than plenty on hand to experiment with and I ended up with an additional "four" one of a kind works.

I had always planned to do one or two of these, so I strategically worked in a few aluminum parts so I could experiment with anodizing when the time came to make this little encore. 

My only regret is that I wish I had opportunity to expand on this a little further, but I know it is time to move on. I need to get to one of the many other ideas I have waiting for me, as they all deserve their day in the sun. 

So what you see, is all that will ever be. Any further concepts will just have to carry over and find expression somewhere else, which is never a bad thing.

So, if you missed out on the original limited release, or just want to add another jewel to your collection, I will be putting these up for collection so they can go to good homes. 

To that end, I have opened an unannounced sign up sale sheet at the link below.

I will leave it open until the beginning of next week (list will close at 9AM Oct 21) Terms of the sale and price are on the sheet. 

Thanks again to everyone who followed along and contributed thoughts and comments along the way. I appreciate hearing from you all. 

We will see you on the next project. And as always, thoughts and comments are welcome.
