One day I decided it might be fun to work with copper.
With so many hobbies I don't have the time for, what's one more? So
I bought an oxyacetylene torch and started reading books from the library
on how to safely use a torch, and a few
books on how to braze copper (they sure make it look easy in the books).
I didn't know any copper artists so I was completely on my own, and
I've never had any kind of background or training in art or working
with metal. What better way to learn?
