This project started with the construction of a contraption for which I have no meaningful name. It is made with varying lengths of redwood set into two circular slabs of ceramic. Drilling holes through the top slab and cavities in the bottom slab were among the challenges in the creation of this contraption.

I needed a place to store said contraption so I built an art room. It took a while to find the suitable marble flooring. You would think finding the right color of paint is easy but color selection was more a challenge than I realized, as was finding the right texture of matte finish paint with a slight hint of gloss. Memories of museums and art galleries inspired the contruction.

The contraption was placed in the middle of the main art room. Ambient lighting is provided with the use of ceiling lights. A good look albeit bare. Adding a spotlight further enhances the look of both the wood and the ceramic.

In the back room, I situated my glass table. And to advance the art (of science), I dug out my Newton's Cradle. Adding a couple of small tree plants helps to fill the massive room. Future ideas include furniture, wall paintings and other ornaments of art.
