Memories and Metal

I'm doing this class for Local 16 in a Scene Shop. We're working with wood and ... with metal. I haven't felt like this since art school at RMIT in Australia.

There is a pleasure in working with metal that I have not felt working with anything else. I suppose it's bc it rusts, which makes it fragile, and that it is incredibly strong. Working with it doesn't feel like working with wood at all. It is somehow separate and 'cold', but it can be worked into the most amazing shapes. Here's some of the art I made 'back in the day'.
