Added some iron

My steel supplier, Gulfstream Metal of Holly Ridge, NC,  dropped off my order in one day.  Yes, it was their regular delivery run but they treat large and small shops alike as if they are the same.  Eddie the driver got a Thanksgiving door hook for helping me stow the big sheets of steel.  Paula helped me cut the 20 footers into 8s and 12s.  When my shoulder heals I’ll be back in business.

John C. Campbell Folk School

Just returned from a fun week at John Campbell Folk School  (folkschool.org) in Brasstown, NC.  With an injured shoulder I opted out of blacksmithing and took a drawing course from Annie Cicalli, a wonderful teacher from North Carolina.  Drawing is important to working in metal art iron and hope it improves my perspective and products.
