one down one to go

okay one down one to go.  just bought a wilton 6" bench grinder on ebay. whoo hooo. i've got some fresh pipe slices cut and waiting for the new grinder to arrive.  next, the dry cut saw, which i am happy to say is going to cost less than i originally thought because i found one that is cheaper and will do more than i had expected (meaning i can cut plastic too).  just needing to get more info on blade types and then i will order that bitch!

i've made/sold two of my new candle holder designs on etsy recently and will have three pencil holders available soon with the same concept in mind.  i think once i get my new tools and learn how to use them i will be more productive and creative with new container/vase ideas.  looking forward to going to the scrap yard and looking for new pipes as well as get my new etsy flower shop going.  I went back to doing some apartment cleaning last week and all my momentum got dislocated.  doing the best i can :)

If I'm excited about your new tools, I can't imagine how excited you must be.

kim..oddly i'm not excited. i always dread new things because they dont work how i'm used to. ie i finally had to buy a new coffee maker and its just not the same at all ...ya know what i mean? i'll be glad for the better usage but the learning curve i dread.
onward i know...

This amazes me that you are afraid of a new tool-you are fearless. I am excited for you, too.

Very happy for you, Paula! I understand that feeling... dreading new tools because you have to learn how to use them, which takes time.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…
