One of the things that I have really enjoyed here is taking classes at the Van Doren Metal Art Workshop. The Van Dorens are a father and son who have years of experience making metal art and are now teaching it to others. Today, I attended my fifth workshop and made two tables. The first table was inspired by one that I saw on the internet. I changed it a little so I think that I can say that it's my own design. The second table with the blue top was inspired by a scrap piece of metal that my instructors had in their studio. Both pieces involved plasma cutting, welding and grinding.
