My Latest Work In Progress by Joseph Nájera

 

I really like this project:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

It reminds me of my New Mexico Heritage, so I decided to make a variation of this design.

I had an idea about what I wanted to do. So far I am just thinking.

aaa

I can see right away that the circle I made is too small. I need to figure out how to make a circle large enough to adapt my design.

My 15 inch circumference was too small. 20 inches seems to work. I am looking at the arrows on the grid.
I won’t know for certain until I shape the pieces and put them into place.

So far so good.

The iron bars are 13 inches before I started shaping them. So now I am thinking this is going to work.
The circle looks too big now. I think I am going to do something about it. It will have to wait. I am out of acetylene for my torch.

End of day one.

About jedwardnajera

I am a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I am an artist, a member of Gallery 9 in Los Altos, California. I published a novel Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, available through Amazon Books. I spent over thirty five years in a classroom. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He was a mechanical engineer and had a wonderful love of history and science. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. He wrote in Spanish and I have spent six months translating these pages into English. Now I am in the process of editing, rewriting, and revising them. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
