The board has been slow lately; I guess everyone is busy.

Here's what i've been up to. The shotgun weathervane isn't mine; the slate with the copper flowers is the program holder for my brothers wedding.

Tom,

Love the flowers...what do you use to clean them? Do you anneal & form them with a torch?

Colpaw-
No heating, just cut the petals and form with turning pliers. They're double sided and slip over a nail shank; when you're done just hit the nail with a rivet set to lock everything in place.

Here's a link to my art stuff (which no one ever buys).

The lotus flowers are done with the same technique.

Device- sorry that's the best pic I got of it, kids were acting up and were tired of me staring at it.
