I had a glorious morning playing around with the forge, something I haven't done since I was a student! Huge fun. My clay pieces are getting fired and I am looking at ways of putting them together so I thought heating up small section mild steel rod would be ideal. It is, I twisted several lengths really easily and got into a good routine with the torch, so much so I now have another plan to use another slightly different method of connecting the clay pieces, never enough time!!!! Many thanks to a lovely student, Charlii Eve for taking the photos.
