Especially when one is wanting to make casts of stuff for a future living.
This semester I am taking three classes, only. They are; Intro to digital photography, Wood-technical, and Cast forms.
In photography, we are working on the technical aspects and some artistic aspects of digital photography. Not many images will end up here as I tend to not remember my usb stick to save the photoshop images. Some may though.
Wood-technical is basically woodshop, and the projects range from a canvass stretcher (too boring to photograph), to a clay tool (possible photograph in future, but still boring) and the current joining project for which I am making a shelved supply holder (photos will happen when it is done and graded)
Update on the supply holder: It is done!
Cast forms class is the big time suck, as I can't do much of it at home, or around the town. We have three projects, all due at the end of the semester, and have to cast in iron, aluminum, bronze, and resin. Iron was cast, de-sprued, and is being chased. Attaching wall attachments will happen soon. Bronze and aluminum waxes were shelled, the bronzes have been poured, and the aluminum will be poured soon. Resin form is in wax and will shortly be molded.
Such is why I am not that active online at this time. My time at home is spent mostly in a semi-fog, or working on the things I can do at home.
