Here is the first pictorial evidence of a dream come true: me learning to MIG weld thicker steel. Yay!!

Don't worry about the gloves on the table, and not on my hands... I was wearing them most of the time, this shot was for the camera : D Learning to weld, and working towards a larger steel sculpture, is part of a mentorship program with Tait Outdoor, with Susan & Gordon Tait, which came about from being a part of Craft Victoria's FRESH! exhibition last year. It's been very interesting to learn about the industrial manufacturing of steel furniture (and Gordon's one off sculptures) in the Tait factory in Thornbury, and visit the beautiful showrooms, one of which opened recently in Sydney.

Stay tuned for pics of progress …
