"lobstah" brass necklace

As playful as the name implies, this brass necklace is a fun and elegant play on the undersea creature.  Art deco meets mod that is a mixing of opposites--void vs. solid, symmetry vs. asymmetry, plan vs. elevation views--creating a dynamic interpretation.  Small and featherweight, but packs a punch that will have everyone looking your way.

"lobstah" brass earrings

A new addition to the nummynims shop!  As playful as the name implies, these earrings are a fun and elegant play on this undersea creature.  Art deco meets mod that is a mixing of opposites--void vs. solid, symmetry vs. asymmetry, plan vs. elevation views--creating a dynamic interpretation. These brass metal pieces suspend mid air while their natural curvature seems to reach up towards you.   Small and featherweight, but packs a punch that will have everyone looking your way.

kowloon walled city_cross section

Amazing diagrams of the infamous Kowloon Walled City in Kowloon, Hong Kong.  Illustrating the density of a site previously used as military fort/outpost turned architecturally organic, maze-like, ungoverned, living district of 33,000 residents or more in its 2.6 hectare borders.  The maze housed not only families, but also a source of brothels, drugs, and gambling activity.  It has since been demolished and turned into a public park, but remnants of its past history like the South entry gate remain.
