In this podcast I will address three topics from Chapter 1, the first being the inspiration behind my drive to learn about plasma, the story and concept behind The Tell-Tale truth, and to expand on the elements of plasma to better transition into chapter 2: Taking Shape, which will involve the functional and aesthetic consideration for making a vessel in glass.
Now back the Element of Plasma where I define what each of these categories are.
So I’m going to stop here, since we are kind of leading up to chapter 2: Taking Shape, where we’ll review the Elements of Plasma, elaborate on why vessel crafting comes first, and contextualized the aesthetic and function considerations in the Anatomy of Plasma Sculpture.
Thank you for listening to the taming lightning podcast!
I’d like to thank GEEX for inviting me to collaborate for this series. Writing the Chapter Notes was challenging, yet fun, though academically I never found myself enjoying writing, yet I hope to have more feedback I can respond to for the upcoming chapters.
Let me know if my experience helped provide some footing since there is yet to exist a comprehensive resource for guidance. While frustrating, through simple curiosity and spark of passion finding various sources to tackle these subjects can be quite fun.
I will admit in the regards to my announcement last podcast I failed to meet the declared release date for the episode by exactly a week, but in the very least I’m homing in. Writing took much more time than I ever anticipated.
Feel free to share, comment, and subscribe.
And as always be safe, be healthy, and be Strong.
See you next time,
