Knowing how much I like to make things out of clay, and out of string, I thought I’d like making things out of metal, too. At least, I thought I’d try it, and maybe appreciate it but not really get into it? HAHAHAHAHAHA. Joke’s on me! I f’ing love it. So much so that I’m off in a few minutes for my, like, third class in about six weeks (and that’s not even counting four times a month at Open Forge). Who knew making hundred (thousand?) degree metal bend to my will would be SO MUCH FUN? Only one burn so far. But lots of new blisters, and lots of new muscle aches. It’s *awesome*.
