I love my studio area. We have special guests this weekend, so I haven’t had time to work in the studio, but I thought you guys might like to take a peek.
My guardian angel for my studio is a makeshift “Elvis angel” with stars that hang above my bench. I made him a few years ago as a prank for a friend who had the perfect, and incredibly boring, Christmas tree. I snuck him on the top and then just waited for her to realize that Elvis was in the building!
You can see why I love my space so much. I spent a few wonderful hours this week taking on my first foldforming project. A friend dropped off a piece of copper flashing for me last week. I decided to use it to practice foldforming. After several hours of very theraputic banging and hammering, this was the result:
I am really inspired by this technique. It doesn’t hurt that the materials are available at the local Home Depot. I have already ordered the premier book on the topic, “Foldforming” by Charles Lewton-Brain. I should be posting several new projects soon.
