#17 Fresh


My idea was fresh approach to what I was torturing myself through doing...standing.
At the cutting phase I prefer to stand...at the grinding and fitting phase I need to stand...
but for the foiling stage I prefer to sit.

The way I had things arranged wasn't affording that possibility.

So I rearranged and now I can sit and foil.

The second table with nothing but a pattern affixed to it, will be where part 2 gets laid as it is cut and ground.

Then they will get transferred to the mold to shape the shade.

Here is a close up of what is done and an idea of what the shade will look like when it becomes the shade


Thank you for coming by!

I was impressed by how many pieces there are in your lampshade. It seems like an ideal situation, now. I know it's hard to stand all the time, although I also stand to make art. I'm glad you found a way to sit through at least a portion (a very LARGE portion) of the process.

Oh. Sorry for passing out there. I thought you said 419 pieces. Did you say 419 pieces?

Wowzers!
