I once collected slag in a bleak time.  I thought I had enough to cover acres, but it added up to this small blot.

The shape of things to come

The two little ovals will be the base for the honeycomb arch.

Tabula Rasa

It's true, this is nothing but preliminary, but somehow at 70 I'm finding that it's all preliminary.
Note the panel is askew.  Where I live, nothing is square for long.

It's a setup

Friends muscled the slab into the shop yesterday, and today I framed up this "easel".  In couple days I might have the stone in place and cleaned up.  There will be a central blob to sketch, incise, and inlay with black slag (do you see where I'm going with this?  Never fear, the effect will be positive.  There should be more--an arch of honeycomb calcite.)
I'm about to begin chemo/radiation, and after another post or two there might be no more for awhile.  This blog is not about cancer.

Gig's wall

One guy, basicly.  A truck and a come-along.
Wonders started out numbered, but I don't think you can anymore.  I'm old enough to believe that there are things that numbers can't contain.
