I spend a lot of time in my personal life, especially these days, feeling angry about the state of the country and disappointed in what turns out to be a fairly large portion of my fellow humans. However, I try to use my work as a positive force in my life. My studio time is time for me to meditate with metal and fire. It’s a time to create beautiful things out of cold, hard materials. To forget about everything else. For the most part, that works out pretty well. But once in a while my anger seeps into my work. And I have no problem with that.
Last week I was in the middle of working on several pieces that I’d wanted to finish for an end-of-the-week shop update, but then this piece popped into my head and I had to put everything else aside to birth it.
I don’t think anyone needs me to spell out what inspired this piece.
Sometimes I just don’t have anything nice to say.
Available in the shop now. 20% of profits will be donated to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
