I got published!

Famed webstore (and my primary supplier of buckyballs) just accepted my Bucky-Mjolnir as a customer action shot! Yay! Internet fame!

About a month ago, The FX studio I work at (Luma Pictures) wrapped up our work on Marvel's new Thor movie. To commemorate, I made a little sculpture of Mjolnir embedded in stone. This was actually the first time I ever sculpted an existing object, instead miscellaneous patterns and arrangements that suited the properties of the magnets. It's also the first time I had to use non-buckyball parts. In order to strengthen the handle and keep it from falling off when tilted, I embedded a AA battery in the base. (The movie turned out great too!)

First Post: My works to date.

Hi! My name is John Hazzard, and I'm an addict. I'm addicted to these damned little magnetic balls. I got my first set a little over a year ago, and since then I've been hooked. Slowly building my collection as I ordered more and more sets to satisfy my ever growing need to build ever bigger and crazier structures.

At any rate, they're kinda nifty to look at. Here's everything that I have pictures of to date. I'll post new stuff as I make 'em.
