News from the workshop

A glimpse of new work in progress fresh from the workshop.

 And back at home in the spare bedroom/ emergency studio...

So, we are looking at 6mm mild steel rod bent and welded. Welding: a magical, alchemical process of melting gas, fire and compound to make drawn images stick and stay in physical space. My plan is to have these bulbous forms painted in the electrostatically charged powder pigment - a process called powdercoating. I have delivered all 17 orbs to the muscular powdercoating gentlemen in Blacktown for their expert candy coloured finish. I can't wait to collect them and see the expert results!
