Just wanted to share what I got to do on my Spring Break (been taking classes at the College). I had the opportunity to go out to Ireland for 9 days, and spent 5 of those days with Brian at the Bregin Clarke Studio School of Metalsmithing! It was a great time! It was nice to see some of the friends I made there some years back. The Guinness was AMAZING too!

There are a few brass objects to be found locally in garage sales and auctions. You know, the "Made in India" plates, candle sticks and what have you. I can use some of it and recycle it for my projects, but majority of it is unuseable due to excessive patterning etc.

I've been doing versions of this shape in different materials over the years. This one is scrap components brazed in a green sand mold and ground smooth. I was casting around for ideas to present the shape sculpturally, frame or plinth for example were too intrusive, so I decided to give it a sort of nominal shelf.

Howdy folks. Cool site. I'm new here, seeking some answers that have eluded me on the internet.... I make jewelry (gold/silver/copper) and machine parts (aluminum/tin) - basically anything that involves melted metal makes me happy. I just love projects of any sort. Currently I'm building an electric motor just for fun (http://davidcolecreative.com/shop.php)

Wire tree sculpture with hammered leaves. 17" wide x 28" high. Created using 18, 24 and 26 gauge steel galvanized wire. The hundreds of leaves are created by hammering flat every end of every wire, the flattened leaves are then hand painted in several shades of green using enamel paint. The fully exposed root system is set into a beautifully hand painted floral design 7" round ceramic pot. The tree sculpture is permanently bonded into its base using a mixture of mortar, white glue, sea sand, pebbles and small rocks. The sand is painted in shades of green and yellow, using India ink, giving the appearance of a moss setting. This sculpture can be displayed in direct sunlight. All the coloring agents used are light fast, and will not fade.
