Scott Lefton is an artist and engineer in Melrose, Massachusetts. His art focuses on sculptural and useful metal, wood, and glass, plus Photoshop. He is occasionally serious about photography. His engineering work involves consulting in the areas of new product design and mechanical design, plus prototype fabrication. He does electronics when necessary, mostly as Arduinos used for electromechanical control applications. He has a well equipped workshop and a major tool buying habit, which 3D printers have insinuated their way into. Art informs his engineering, and engineering informs his art. He created the 2004 Hugo base and the half-scale Hugo rocket that was displayed on the ISS. His current obsessions include developing better ways of precision forming stained glass sheets into complex 3D shapes.
