Metal magic

Metal is so amazing, one moment it is unmovable but then you add a bit of heat or pressure and there is movement. Old metal has stress fractures that you can’t see but if you add more stress they can break. Akin to people, so much we don’t see on the inside. I love old metal with rust pocketed marks and liken growing on it. The hammer marks and wear marks from multiple story lines, if only they could talk.

the idea was to create a bedside table.

these parts came together. It was an exercise in metal balancing. I liken it to stone balancing in a river, one piece balances the next so it can stand.
