Making is a conversation. A collaboration. A path. Training and experience be damned. It’s the same for good design and workmanship. These are only parts of the equation. There’s also the materials, as well as the tools I hold.
Making is a compromise between the ideal you hold and the parts you use. Everyone speaks. My role is to tame the beast, that stuff on my bench. There are the days when the metal tells you what it wants to be. And all you can do is take the ride. But the material does talk to you. And you have to listen.
For 45 years I’ve listened. The conversation will continue. Some day, the material may hear me too.
The new RS website is coming soon.
