My 'forge arrived last week, and I’m just diving into working with it. My proofgrade draftboard shipment is lost somewhere in Chicago UPS so in the meantime I’ve been working with other cheap materials to experiment on (and a little bit of the starter kit…)
Not a lot of novel stuff, but I wanted to show of some of what I’ve been cooking up!

Dad makes/designs paper snowflakes, this is one of my favorites, now immortalized in slate.
