I'm looking forward to discovering what they do for fun.
I'm currently working on a copper fold formed tea pot. It's coming along nicely. I'll get back to posting the progress on it towards the end of the week. There are a number of things I do for fun. I'll go for a walk along the beach to watch the sunset or go to a near by game preserve to escape the city and see the alligators or watch the pelicans..I have a new found appreciation for these weather prediction birds. To an Iowa boy a pelican is a wonderment.
Most of all, when I'm not observing, I'm making. I enjoy the challenge, I have fun doing it. It provides me with my escape from things in the world that drive me crazy, those large issues we can't do anything about. I make things..For a couple of years now those things have been copper things. The piece I'm going to show you today is one I made a few years ago. It's made from just two pennies and a glass bead I made. I found it in my stash. I hope you can see the magic of the making as two pennies become a magic wand. Making a magic wands is serious business, ya know. If the piece is about any thing, then it's about the "fluididity" of the materials..( It's my blog I can make up words if I want to) besides fluididity sounds magical. I hope you see the "fluididity" of just pennies really and glass.
