Default Hello from the UK

Hello,
I have been making copper garden ornaments on & off for about two years, some of which were commissioned. I am now expanding into larger pieces, initially with sheet steel.

I have just got my first commission for an abstract piece, which will either be painted mild steel, or Corten steel.

I'm in the process of learning about larger sculptures and refurbishing my MIG welder which has lain dormant for maybe 30 years.

I'm happy to share what little knowledge I have, and looking forward to learning a lot.

I also painting watercolour a bit.

Thanks chaps. Just looked at your websites - you're both at the top of your game! I'm a lightweight, but would like this to take over from my day job one day.
Cheers.

You're too kind. I really enjoy being self unemployed and highly recommend it to everyone I meet. Life is too short.....
