Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm an alum now (MEng & SB in Computer Science, course 6, 2006 and 2005). This will be the eighth Splash where I've taught chocolate sculpture. Chocolate is especially fun, but I also like making all kinds of things (shoes, paintings, drawings, mosaics, and more).

It Doesn't Just Taste Good! in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
In this class, we’ll make sculptures out of chocolate! But, they’ll look so good you won’t want to eat them when you’re through. In previous years students have come up with all kinds of creative designs: viking ships, a suspension bridge, rainbows, fireplaces, dragons, islands, scenes from books, space ships, turtles, houses, horses, abstract pieces, sunflowers, lily pads, chess boards, painters’ palettes, breakfast, a clock, a wedding dress, three turkeys, pyramids, trees, playing cards, robots, pumpkins, the Apple Logo, a Snitch and the Sorting Hat, and more. You can see more examples here: <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/111405222431264859764">https://picasaweb.google.com/111405222431264859764</a>. Candy bars don’t count… :) Come with ideas or come up with something on the spot! Those with food allergies: Chocolate may contain peanuts or peanut products. Sorry. :(


Advanced: It Doesn't Just Taste Good! in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
This version of "It Doesn't Just Taste Good" is for older students interested in making more complex sculptures out of chocolate. The goal is still to make them look so good that you won't want to eat them when you're through. But there will be emphasis on more complicated or intricate designs / forms and additional time to work on them. Examples of what I consider "advanced" sculptures from the past include: a model of MIT, a suspension bridge, etc. You can see more examples here: <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/111405222431264859764/AdvancedChocolateSculptureExamples">https://picasaweb.google.com/111405222431264859764/AdvancedChocolateSculptureExamples</a> . As always, candy bars don’t count… :) Please come with an idea for your design so we can get started as soon as the class begins!
