I've been busy on a new commission this past week, making a pair of copper vessels. These are to be smaller versions of the large evaporating dishes used on the old sugar cane plantations here in the Caribbean. The actual ones are anywhere from three to six feet in diameter and usually made from either copper or cast iron. The syrup pressed from the sugar canes is put in these dishes and heated over a charcoal fire for days and days until the syrup is reduced to molasses, a more compact form for shipping to the homeland where it is then fermented and distilled into rum. There are literally hundreds of these things scattered around the island, mostly being used as "yard art" or planters/fish ponds, and they are in big demand by decorators.

Ok, I've been meaning to update this project of ours and now that it has begun to get nasty outside it seemed like a good time. I have many pictures to add, so I have created a simple system in which to analyze them to better understand what you are seeing. The system is just two pictures of the billet, and then an alphabetical sequence to follow with descriptions. Hopefully you find it somewhat interesting and enjoyable.

Hello fellow metal artists.
This is my first post on ArtMetal so I've sent an image along to establish some legitimacy as a silversmith. (Though not, admittedly, as a photographer, heh.)
I'm a student in Fredericton, New Brunswick who's been away from the bench for a few years and is just returning with the intent of making metalworking my career. I'd like to hear from people who make a living with their craft so we can start a dialog.
