Artly, Calipers

Artly, Calipers

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.

Art on,
