Show Topic: Talking Metal Fabrication with Special Guest Kevin Caron
- What is your background, how did you get started in metalwork?
- What would you recommend people getting started welding start with?
- Kevin, looking at your website I see the Red Moon Slice end table. How big is your 3d printer to be able to print it.
- Brice McPherson - Kevin, i'd like to know your thought process on your site-specific sculptures. Do you go in with a plan or let the context speak to you? What initial steps do you take in your design process?
- Chris Gallegos - Hey guys! Question for Kevin-How often do "mistakes" or unintentional things become a part of the art sculptures or change the design? Or is it always to plan?
Joke of the week
Bob had a lot of work ahead of him so decided to hire a part time helper.
" Your first job will be to sweep up the sawdust." he said handing him a broom.
" Look I'm PRACTICALLY a university graduate," the young man protested.
" Oh, I understand..." Bob replied "Here, I'll show you how." xD
