Last Sunday I carried my Ibanez Artcore semi-hollow sexy body to my Blues class in downtown Berkeley.
That mother of a guitar and its case is heavy, and it sucks to carry it.
I don't care to get a lighter guitar necessarily, but a case on the other hand I think could make the case lighter, and even add an artisanal touch to a case.
What is usually a bland and non-flashy thing, sometimes decorated with stickers could be a piece of art in itself, a personal expression.
Inspired by MycoWorks' work, led by Phil Ross, I'm going to set out to construct some stuff from mushrooms and give this thought some life.
A little later I'd like to post an update with a prototype of the mold the mushroom should grown in.
Ken from Counter Culture Labs mentioned some mushroom varieties to try out and some techniques that might improve the structural integrity of the final product.
Write, post, publish, prophet!
