heavy metal

We had the heavy metals building opening and ribbon cutting last night at the Eureka Springs School of the Arts. We had music, wine, snacks, and a demonstration of our coal forge with blacksmith Bob Patrick making a decorative metal trivet. I can see the potential for making interesting tools and I hope at some point to use the equipment to forge a block knife.

I was lucky to have been one of the three founders of the Eureka Springs School of the Arts, and it is exciting to see it having grown to the point at which its importance is well accepted by our community. The building was designed by architect and ESSA board member, David McKee.

It is true that one person can help in the shaping of a community and have lasting impact. The school of the arts has become a place where people can invest in making the world a better place for each other.

Make, fix, and create...
