A larger 26" collection of fun rusty mermaids as a new product line were solidified this week. They are a bigger version of my rusty mermaid stakes and have fun blue or silver starfish in their hands. Great alone or even better in a grouping!
Also did several mid sized metal mermaids and hundreds of ornaments this week, the latter which are headed to Butchart Gardens soon to open artists Garden Gift Gallery.
Fine art student, we'll call her 'Z', from Camosun College was in the shop with me this week for volunteer work experience. What a great experience it was for me to learn from her and to share what I know and do with such a talented young person! We did everything from plasma cutting, pattern making, welding, and the really fun part, shopping at the metal scrap yard on a nice sunny day.
