WORK IN PROGRESS

And so it begins, the steel is cut and the hinges work, the spot welding is done


and the grip coat has been fired on without a hitch. The piece looks pristine, I like the simplicity and at a pinch I would leave it at that. What makes us go on? Often to over work something or create technical problems that more firings will produce. I would like to think that it is the explorer in me?


I came across this saying posted on http://www.artpropelled.blogspot.com/



"Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Even though you're feeling deeply, lightly let things happen, and lightly cope with them on tip toes and with no luggage, completely unencumbered".

Aldous Huxley



I know it's not like me to post deep and meaningful, but this struck a cord and I hope to act upon it with this piece of work... well I will try!

I love it just as it is... but you never know what might happen!

You can write the words but I know you... I suspect you're already thinking of other ways to adorn it... or maybe not... I shall be intrigued to see whether you leave it looking as pristine and spare!

You are going from strength to strength! I love the simplicity of this book. Make another one to take on an adventure.

The quote struck a cord with me also. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing that Aldous Huxley quote.

Your work is really interesting.
