I always wanted to get more into sculpture so this week I started a ‘Metal and Sculpture’ course at Central Saint Martins. We are a small group, learning how to safely manipulate tools and machinery. Learning practical skills and techniques associated with the fabrication of steel and aluminium sculpture.
We had our fist lesson on wellding and the rest of the equipment such as gas powered forge, bending and folding machines, mig and arc welders, chop saw and a plasma cutter. It is so exciting! My favourite is the plasma cutter, it’s like hand drawing but with metal. I will show you the final masterpiece later, so far I just want to share with you the process.
