Jay Nelson’s Art Shelters…. part dwelling/part artwork (A DOME-HOUSE CAR!?)

First, thanks to Kent “Big K” Griswold for posting on my “Redneck Windows For Tiny Houses” Video- you can check it out on TINY HOUSE BLOG. Also. I rarely go a day without posting but yesterday, from 6am to 9pm I was wrapped up in another “Tiny Yellow House” TV shoot for Make Magazine- Carpentry, Car-crushin, n’ Karate- all in one episode! AND just got the brand new issue of Readymade Magazine in the mail, and Mimi Zeiger (who will be on our panel of teachers for this summer’s 2011 Hands-On, Tiny House/Shelter Building Workshop- if interested) had as great article on a man by the name of Jay Nelson.
Jay’s a trained artist, but has often dabbled in shelter-structures as art- as you can see in this little gallery I pieced together below…
