Art Show! by TimeTurbine
Art Show!

Art show this weekend! And a free Blacksmithing/Chasing/Repousse demo! Can your Saturday night get any better?

Well yes it can!

If you're near Sac you could swing down and spend some time with me downtown! It's a very impressive looking mask show comprised of artists from all over the country, and local food scene is pretty good too!

I'll see you there!…

Mask show Goodies! by TimeTurbine
Mask show Goodies!
Forged from 12ga mild steel, pretty happy with how it turned out, the new 1/8th inch chasing tools I made helped quite a bit with keeping the eye brows cleaner looking.
 It's not perfect but I'm happy with it!
 It's the first steel piece I've made since doing the John Muir Trail, after 3-4 weeks with almost no hammering my arms where surprisingly sore! Even from just a little break like that, funny that 9 years of hammering isn't enough to keep me from getting sore still.

Copper Mask for an Gallery Show
I've got a few masks that are almost finished destined for an August Mask show at FeGallery in Sacramento! I'll be demoing some of my chasing for their second saturday art walk so if you're in town come on out and hang with me! Good beer and food with all the atmosphere a blacksmith shop can provide!

Dragon Menpo
Pierce work and patina is all that's left. Made from 12ga mild steel for sca combat. It's still pretty rough I'll admit but I was over budget just to get it this far so gotta call it for now, that's just how it is sometimes :P
Still a pretty fun piece, can't wait to see it on the field!

How did you learn metalwork? Do you offer classes?
TimeTurbine Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Took basic metal working classes, listened to anyone who would give me advice, looooooots of trial and error. Practice and patience. And as of now no. I don't have the facility nor the expertise...or a large enough portfolio to think about offering classes, But if you'd like I'll keep you in mind if I start teaching folk.

Please do. I'm always interested in learning.
