This is a challenging design to build.

Not suitable for a beginner.

It is offered in the spirit outlined

at the masthead of this site:

Design is a distillation of Craft

The best design is not a set of instructions.

Good design inspires us to relate both to the materials at hand

and our place in the world: physical, social, and spiritual.

Design provides a framework for Craft

where we may develop our skills

Design is not a prison of intention

Design is a trellis

This site has been optimized for a 16:9 aspect ratio

and a large screen.

If you’re having trouble,

landscape works better than portrait.
