Some of my ongoing work. Dog and Cat collars or as I like to refer, necklaces. As Rachel mentioned today’s Dog with a capital D has a much better life than maybe some of my friends. It’s a whole new thing to worry about. I still remember the days of the ddt airplanes flying low spraying for mosquitoes with what was probably Agent Orange degreaser and wanting to be in the path so we would get some on us.
To me, a East Coast blue collar type who use to be expected to be perfect! Perfect? Yes, perfect. I loved it and lived by the film. X-ray computed tomography to be precise. It’s where photons pass through the metal and basically give you a thickness all the way to creating a picture of the molecular reconfiguration of joining the parent metals and the filler rod. My fitter buddies “Brainiac Michael Matthews” “Steamfitter outta 420 Phila PA”job construction superintendent at Limerick for 20+ years during it’s construction use to say Man, I’ve seen welds but that my friend is art. I’d come back and say, and seam has a story.
The stories I have…. leads me to say, Ruari’s Guardian’s making all the decisions on his new dog necklace/collar that he’ll be adorning at the “Crufts” dog show . Oh! I didn’t mentioned it’ll have a matching lead in the same theme, “Irish”. My Nana was from the “Cork”
