It’s a COOL day
to be HOT
Sometimes we don’t realize how much we miss something until we encounter it again.
Today was one of those days for me. Throughout my art school years, I did a lot of metal work; and then for various reasons, working in a metal shop was not part of my art practice.
Since the fall , I have been working with sculpture students helping them cut, weld, and forge metal and it has been nice.
Today, while welding and with my face hidden behind the shield, a certain level of of comfort and ease settled upon me and I realized how much I enjoy working with metal. I love the challenge of bending, shaping, trying to tame its unyielding nature. I don’t always win. •
Anyone else experience this about something that was once so familiar ?
