First Fires: Furnace Burn In And Test Ingots.

First Fires: Furnace Burn In And Test Ingots.
Just an update, I finally managed to get the initial burn in for the small furnace done. And, me being me decided to make a quick video about it. You have to understand, for me this is a milestone of sorts. I've been getting ready for this for a very long time now. This stage means I'm ready to go. I haven't been blessed with armies of minions to cover the slack so at times it's been slow, but sure. I don't think I'd have it any other way because one of my personal quirks is knowing about a whole process- of which having too many people around can mean details I want or need can be overlooked. In the end, I can also say "I did it." Anyways, enjoy the little movie, and know I'm doing a very, very happy dance.

Not too bad, I like it.   The stone is a slightly larger version of one of the earlier tests I did, being about 3.25". I'm probably going to produce some real nice(er) desktop versions of my own patterning in bronze, this was a archeological 3D scan I worked with- I like it, but want to do my own 'thang. I think you'll be interested.

3D Printing. Took The Plunge.

3D Printing. Took The Plunge.
It was inevitable. Last year, I began a serious delve into kicking my design skills on the computer up a few more notches. I mean, I've spent years (decades really now) working with digital art, and all this time it's primarily been for the crazy idea that eventually, I'll be able to do things more efficiently in the studio. I've got about 300 hours of direct applied time in class (3D) and I noticed how the previous skillsets made this come together more fluidly.   It's worked most of the time, and if anything I've been taught a bit more patience. Well, alot. See, my craft involves dedication, plain and simple. Having a quirk that has me constantly applying overboard personal critique leads to many projects you haven't seen. I had to stop doing that because in the long run I beat myself up before and by the time I...
