A few pictures of Metal Mermaid Welding at the 2013 Filberg Festival. Weather was not too hot and loads of people came through to both shop and look on their way to the music on offer. Many old and new friends came by to say hello and the one thing I always love is hearing people's reactions to my work, the laughing, chuckles, and oohing and aahing. If you were coveting anything I may still have it, though sales were very brisk and I came home much lighter. I make new and some of the same things every year so my stock is always changing and one of a kind. Chandeliers were a big hit, along with the birdcages and crows. The most popular sculpture at my booth was the 3D metal dog with his turning head, metal ball, and old biscuit tin carrying case. He went to a very good home, hope the pet dogs did not get jealous!
