Quiet hammerings in the night…

June 1, 2008 § Leave a comment

Evenings are the perfect time for me to sit at my bench and work out some of my ideas and visions. As I do, I find myself reaching for tools I know will wake our children. Do I go to the basement and work or keep sketching? I keep sketching, but my visions of my work becomes more dimensional. I sketch the contours of human bodies and how the piece will lay, which part would lay best over which curve of the body, etc.

In the morning, when I head to the bench for a few hours work, I’ll be further along than I might have, but I feel like I’ve missed something. Time to play with the metals, watch them move and bend to my desire…maybe some nights I’ll choose to play.

I hope you’ve chosen to play some this week…or even this weekend. It’ll keep you young.
