I know I haven't been keeping my blog up, but sometimes things like making a living, staying caught up on commissions or even personal injury get in the way.

I got my left hand caught in a freight elevator door back on January 12 and as of today I only have 50 percent use of it.  This has slowed me down considerably with my business and forced me to rethink the way I sculpt and cast bronze.

I am finally getting caught up on some projects I fell behind on when I injured my hand and have started to design a new pouring set up that I can operate one handed.  I should have done this years ago but never thought I would not be able to pour due to loosing most of the use of one of my hands.

I look on the bright side, partial use of the hand is better than no use, but for a sculptor any loss  pertaining to the use of the hands is critical.

Adapt, Preserver. Conquer, and Overcome that which limits me!
