Linda Larsen: The foundation for creativity is understanding the construction techniques -- being able to imagine and visualize, then having the skills to create what you see in your mind. Create shapes and visual movement in metal with a structure built around your own special treasure or stone. Forging, shaping, planishing, and texturing sheet metal and wire; forming stakes. These skills will set you free to be more creative in your work and allow you to resolve connection issues.
