This is everything I threw for Grand Lake and Temescal this weekend

        Every few weeks I make a batch of "dancers". I press square pipe from my extruder, allow it to reach the leather hard state overnight, then carve and assemble these figurative pieces. By  the time they are ready for cleanup, there is a big pile of trimmings for recycling. 

        This is the first week of holiday work, when the special orders outnumber the new inventory for display. This time of year tests my ingenuity, but new creative discoveries emerge.
