After weeks of filling orders and producing repeats of popular products it was a great relief to work a lot looser and just look around the shop and put things together spontaniously. A few visitors came by and donated some fantastic metal shapes and scraps and they had the full studio, garden, workshop tour. I also created some fun mini birds cages this week, they look great hanging in the garden or a sunny room.with a little 3D bird inside. Cutting was inspired this past week, with the plasma I cut a new metal quail hook, a number of beautiful recycled rusty and painted items into numerous sized heart shapes, the color combinations are stunning as I wired them and made them into ornaments. Of course, the displays needed to be made for the new products, old whitewashed wood was the solution in a mini gate shape, wood is nowhere near as forgiving as metal, but I do love my cordless drill and the challenge. It is great to be creative, especially in the middle of busy show season, as it gives my clients a surprise of new, unexpected and one of a kind items.
