glad the video is being well received. I'm still trying
to figure out the best type of compression for the
highest quality viewing. I'd be open to anyone with
tips. :)

thanks for viewing.

I love this video. I have done some tiny pieces but
this is very inspiring - love the hammer too, have to
do it by hand!

Bill,
I can't think of anything more fun than
evolving metal from sheet to form. Whether it's fold
forming, forging, chasing/repousse, your video is
inspiring for all who love whacking sheet into art! />Kay

Oh so helpful! I have the book but I didn't really get
how the metal curled like that. Thanks!

Bill,
great work, as usual. Loved seeing your
hammer pounding away. I love Charles Lewton Brain's
Form Folding, yours is a totally grand perspective. />Thanks for the video.
