When in doubt, weld the hell out of it.



The best way to check your welds is to throw it down a flight of stairs.

The best sculptors all had a trade to support themselves; I’m a carpenter.

    1. It really feels good when your sculpture survives the fall. I have also hammered on a piece of wood on top of my sculpture to test welds. That feels just as good. You know, you don’t need to have a sculpture under a piece of wood. You can just use a hammer, some long nails and a clear place in the yard 🙂 That feels really good. When done, pick it up, bend the nails over using the hammer and put the wood in your burn pile.
