"Creative Invention," Creative Life, by Steve Junker
A conversation with inventor Scott Smith, of Osterville. Since 2001, Mr. Smith has owned a company that produces cellular foam products -- things like padding for football helmets, and packaging inserts. Two disasters, four years apart, gave Mr. Smith first the creative inspiration for an invention, and then an opportunity to test it on a world stage.
Bob Jordan has a 3000-degree forge in his garage. He’s a blacksmith with over 40 years of experience – including work with German, Italian and North American Masters. J.P. Davidson visited Bob’s workshop in Orleans for our Creative Life series.
