Memorial for Myrtle

Nancy Hansen came to me with a little sketch on a piece of scratch paper. This is the finished memorial to her mother. This memorial is hollow, to allow Nancy to plant flowers inside it this spring.

The Glamour of Art Making

While working in the foundry this week my bridge crane collapsed, missing crushing my arm by an inch. The thing is I could have predicted this happening because I had never really finished welding the thing together 8 years ago, but heck, it worked OK all that time. So my glamourus work was rebuilding this big heavy tool the last two days.

There was some art work going on as well. The piece I'm working on is "Angeles Everywhere if You Know How to Look". Here are a couple of my angles helping me roll 3/16" steel plate. Stan and Dean seem to show up just when I need the help.
