As of tomorrow, August 1st. 2010, it will be 17 years since I started trading as Neon Neon from my studio in Farnham. So how much neon have I produced in that time? As a rough calculation, I reckon it's into the 10's of 1000's of individual neon sections probably equating to 100's of miles of neon tubing. A lot of cuts, a lot of burns and a lot of late nights. But I still have the satisfaction of seeing some of my original pieces still up and running. More often than not it's the shop or the club that seem to stop trading before the neon stops working.
Roll on the next 17 years.
