Making assemblage Art often involves taking apart everyday things, a dis-assembly.
To me, assemblage is sculpture. And the tools may come from anywhere, like Vernier calipers.
The work on the bench needed a slightly complex shape to more finish the design.
I measured the weld-ment, the incomplete sculpture, with the calipers.
Next, I marked the “stock”, or source material.
Then, I made the cuts and trimmed a bit, enough to confirm my imperfections.
I thought how fortunate I had been since the newly created piece was so close to the desired shape.
The use of production tools is the largest positive factor in my Art.
