Special Guest: Willard Wigan is a sculptor from Birmingham, England, who makes microscopic art. Willard’s micro-sculptures are so minute that they are only visible through a microscope. Each piece commonly sits within the eye of a needle, or on a pin head.
Willard’s artwork has been described by many as “the eighth wonder of the world”. Such accolade resulted in him being honoured by HM. Queen Elizabeth II with an MBE for his services to art, which was presented by HRH. Prince Charles in July 2007.
Owners of Willard’s work now include: HRH. Prince Charles, Sir Elton John, Sir Philip Green, Lord Bath, Mike Tyson and Simon Cowell to name but a few. Willard’s latest piece, the Coronation Crown was requested by HRH Queen Elizabeth II in tribute to her celebration to her Diamond Jubilee. http://www.willard-wigan.com
Special Guest: Horologist Stephen Forsey partner in the Greubel Forsey watch making company. In 1999 Greubel and Forsey began working on a new generation of tourbillon specifically designed to improve the timekeeping of the mechanical watch. Four years later they unveiled "Greubel Forsey" and stunned horological aficionados with their innovative Double Tourbillon 30°, a timepiece clearly demonstrating their twin goals of innovation and excellence. http://www.greubelforsey.com
Art Piece 1 is collaboration between Robert Greubel, Stephen Forsey and Willard Wigan, and features one of Wigan’s micro-sculptures, observable through special optics.
We're back once again with the latest episode of the #LOVpod, and this week is a packed affair with lots to talk about.
Chris, Dan and Liam began the pod with the traditional news segment of the pod, kicking off with the startling revelation that Bolton Wanderers may be signing David Dunn. The lads then discussed the other rumoured incoming over the past week including Ryan Taylor, James Forrest and Wilson Palacios, that was before they then casted their eyes on the potential outgoings of Conor Wilkinson, Sanmi Odelusi, Rob Hall and others from the Macron Stadium. The segment was then brought to a close by discussing the returning Baptiste, Spearing and Medo, and also chatting about Tim Ream's call up to the USA's Gold Cup sqaud.
Next up, it was time to discuss the new BWFC home kit that has been quite a contentious issue on the internet, and the results are surprisingly positive. Liam then listened on in bemusement as Dan and Chris spent a good ten minutes discussing squad numbers for the coming season.
Afterwards, Chris tried his hand at being the Guess Who clue master, which... went well. Before the pod was brought to a close discussing this weeks Twitter question: who are our biggest rivals? With lots of random tidbits inbetween, this weeks pod is a return to form after last weeks short affair, so enjoy!
Back on time and back on form, yep, the #LOVpod managed to be completed all in one night this week, and there wasn't one serious technical mishap to be seen. Such bliss.
On this weeks show was the regulars Dan and Chris, the returning Rob, and special guest, Mark Yesilevskiy, co-founder of the Lion of Vienna Suite, making his pod debut.
The show once again kicked off with a good old news round up. Whilst there wasn't much to talk about in terms of Bolton signing players, apart from the new rumour that we're apparently trying to bring Leicester City centre back, Liam Moore in on loan. However, there was still plenty of news to be had. Adam Bogdan's move to Liverpool was finally confirmed, and his replacement in Ben Amos is said to be completed, but just needs to be confirmed. Darren Pratley deciding to sign a new deal instead of leaving was discussed, before a brief talk on our reaction to long time Bolton target, Craig Morgan, opting to sign for Wigan.
In segment two, the lads discussed, with the fixtures to be announced in the coming week, who they'd like to face on the opening and closing days of the season. Then they moved swiftly on to Guess Who, which was over far too quickly for Dan's liking.
Next up, the news that Wanderers will be lowering the academy's status, from Category One to Category Two, was discussed in depth, with each cast member giving their opinions. The Twitter question of the week was also on this topic too, and we got a lot of contrasting arguments.
The show finished off by taking full advantage of Mark's American expertise, as he offered some insight onto the future of Stuart Holden and the chances of Tim Ream making the USMNT squad for the Gold Cup.
