I am an art educator, turned exclusively metalsmith and always jump at the chance to learn new skills, processes, & techniques.  Life-long learning.  But I can’t really learn until I attempt it hands-on and continue to experiment by DOING a process, skill, technique over and over.  Successes and failures teach. . .the sum total of learning.  And the sum total allows creativity to flow and flourish.  The more skills, the more creativity.

Truth be told, there are agonizingly boring tasks necessary in metalsmithing that can’t be imagined by the viewer, excluding the well-trained eye.  They are basics that can confine me or can ultimately let me go.  

To keep it all, I get to share with others; the learning, the skills, processes, and techniques and the final product which I want to share with you.

Blog on!
