steelworks



Today is exciting. I have considered having this small copper piece that I made some years ago made up in steel for the garden and today the dream came one big step nearer. Having spoken to a new contact in all things metal about the issues, folding,welding and finishing - I think it can happen in the near future. This will involve taking paper patterns from the copper, scaling up to life size and then making full size hardboard ones from which to cut the steel. When assembled cleaned back and zinc coated I will be able to apply a paint finish of my choice. So much fun - and the set up event as well. I am expecting it to be in place for our late September show, so be sure to come and see.
