A very busy work week with less than 2 1/2 weeks until the massive Filberg Festival art and music event in Comox. Filling in some gaps in product, hooks, ornaments, some new hooks mounted on driftwood, rusty mermaid stakes and something very popular, my 'Crow window arches'. Pictures show some of the steps in the hand building of the crows and their environment, my main environment of late too. A few straight days of cutting with the plasma cutter for all those items, always fun wearing a respirator and coveralls when the weather is hot. Needless to say work starts early and finishes when my gear slides off due to sweat.
