I left off in my previous post with an image of the silver pallet
But there is plenty to do. that last show, Discovery Green Flea By Night, was very dusty. I have to replace the water color paper used as a backdrop and make new signs. The silver pallet above will be integrated into the Fall Post-Apocalyptic Primative Collection.
Back in the studio, I am using the fold-forming procedure as revealed by Charles Lewton-Brain in books and videos over the past 30 years.
Lewton-Brain advocates a pure creative process. I decided to drop the piece into a bowl of pitch and chase the outlines for greater definition.
A texturing punch made by the Italian artist Fabrio Aquafresqua is used to create the scoring in these cells.
At this point I ran out of propane. Then the A/C duct work fell apart. I have to stop everything and address this matter. It is approaching 100 degrees outside in Austin each day.
It takes about 6 hours to build a new stand and re-work the ducts. This corner of the studio needs to be put back togehter.
The AC fixed, as I write, after a 101 degree day, it's 90 degrees outside, but a cool 74 degrees in the studio. This has me enerjized, so I upgraded a stump by installing hammer holders around the perimeter.
Out of propane cannisters, I cant go abck to the chasing project, needing about a dozen more mobiles for Whilte Linen NIght, I commence making them.
We started talking about the fold-form process. Life interrupts. I like to show progress in the form of completing something. Two mobiles for White Linen Night in the Heights hang in front of signed a poster for Rock Star Flutist Sarah-Jane Hargis. I will get back to the fold-form procedure on another day.
