Its Monday. Following advice from a friend I'm going to give it whirl, posting a blurb once a week.
Today I spent some time in the shed grinding steel rings.
Some mates in the next town south bought the Scout Hall and inherited many steel and wooden chairs. They have given them to 35 artists to do something with for an exhibition in March at the local community centre.
I cut my steel frame tubing up into little pieces to make rings. I've cleaned them up and next i'm going to etch them. They will end up joined together as a chain. Not sure what I'm doing with the wooden bits yet.
I'm enjoying it - lots of sparks off the grinder wheels. Had some Flashdance moments. Hot holes melted my gloves so I patched them with gaffer tape and persisted until the job was done.
They are super shiny.
And a snap of part of the shed. There's a lot of stuff in it. Lots of hoarders in Patea. Could be something in the water.
Its all good stuff though.
