SHELVSCAPE IS BORN! by Terry Dote

Im adding a new page to this website entitled SHELVSCAPE  This is a new product in its beginning phases of promotion.  There are still some barriers to break through on educating the consumer of its versatile use and functionality.  

This fantastically elegant looking systemIt is completely modular, using a unique bracket system that secures it to the wall.  It is a variation on the french cleat system, adopted by the shakers for hanging shelves chairs and tools. The boxes appear to be floating effortlessly  on your walls, holding your special things!  

There are limitless combinations using a few basic box designs, and assembled in a "box cloud", for multiple display and storage scenarios.

SOME QUESTIONS FOR MY WORK by Terry Dote

 Im Taking some time to list the recent questions Ive been asking of my work.  I have also been asking them recently of my past work, so they also start the conversation of improvement over time. These questions would be the white scale stuck to the pot after boiling down the water.  Some square post essentials that are present when the work is thought of and written,drawn,or otherwise recorded.  After the obvious initial question "Does this thing look Hot?"  Often the correct answers to these questions are what makes it hot in the first place! 

MAKE SENSE  -

Does it act right in the room?  Does it locate itself but still get lost?  

Is it coherent when it communicates in its crowd, and to its users?

MAKE SPACE  -

Does it Contain used space, and activate negative space in a positive way ?

MAKE HAPPY -

Does it create a general sense of playfulness and intrigue through its material, color, proportion and other such qualities of nice things?
