will the artifacts cease to inform us
as the intellegence of the hand-made diminishes?
when we pick up a hand tool, be it a fountain pen
or a hand plane, will instinct carry us across the void
so we can carry some special traditions forward?
is anthropology more crucial now than ever before
for it's lessons in, how they used to do things?

it's an alloy that has the qualities that make it a good choice for a marine environment
and it does oxidize green
but unlike stainless or silicon bronze you can cut it with a bandsaw
so it's sympathetic to hand fabrication
i made these caps to be bedded with 3M 5200 to keep the water from following the chain plates through the deck
earth air fire and water
imagine the wood smoke
of a viking departure
through the treetops
