Hi Eamonn, i'm with everyone

Hi Eamonn, i'm with everyone else, WOW. Even more so that it's fabricated and not cast, and further that the fabrication is from old kitchen sinks! It's one of those pieces that are great on their own, and absolutely spectacular with the story behind it. Can't wait to see what you do next.
