Science Art – Paperclip Bowl
Science Art – 3D printed paperclip bowl with lid in the form of a laboratory flask embossed with molecule and bubble motifs and incongruously – cats.
I worked as a medical lab technician for many years in both Australia and New Zealand. There are many things I loved about the work, the wonderful friends I made, but also chemistry, science and technology.

The Agony of leaving a Job
I believe workmates are like a family and the workplace is a second home. How painful then to be moved to an untenable position and with great reluctance choose to resign. That familiar place then turned into luxury offices for the corporate sycophants. They call this chaos a “restructure” and it looks good on their resume. Such is corporate life.
Sadly my loathing of managers and the corporate system is now so visceral that I choose to solve my own problems. The corporates have lost me forever (as if they would care !).
This is an easy one – who doesn’t love cats? But incorporating them into my design is off-theme. Why did I add them ? Because I wanted to. The joke about a Cat-alysed reaction is best appreciated by chemistry nerds like me.
