It’s been 32 years since Mount Saint Helen’s blew! Do you remember where you were? When I woke up this morning I was thinking of the friends I lost and how if it had not been for being needed at work I would have been up camping with them all.I got called in just as we were loading the car and so I let my friends take my tent and stove they headed to the Mountian and I went to work.
These memories were a prompt that inspired me to knock something off my to do list!
A year ago this week at LOGIN, I was asked to make a custom piece of work for Jamil Moledina. He wanted a place to display a cool sci-fi gaget that he used in a photo promoting his novel Tearing the Sky.
After almost a year of digging through scrap yards I finally found the pieces I needed to create his piece. It’s about time stands 21 1/4 inches tall. I am still experimenting with the sizes of glass for the top but the hard part is over! Basically all that is left to do is some clean up and then its off to San Francisco!
Special thanks to my friend and expert welder Denny Croston for the use of his shop and for helping to make the construction process a breeze!
