I haven’t yet had time to dedicate a post to the new press, a fiery orange Takach with a 36″ x 48″ press bed. In the meantime, here’s a little still life with some of the more complex möbius models that are accumulating on the frame. The figure in the foreground is a torus of 12 möbius strips designed by Rick Russ. Behind it, a double möbius with linked circular openings designed by Furquan.
Happy Holidays! (from Mobius models on the studio floor and prepped copper plates in the afternoon light) May your days be merry and bright.
