My dad is a reenactor. He's done revolutionary war, civil war, and now he's on the war of 1812.
He sent me a whole mess of photos of watch fobs in the hopes that I will craft one for him.
I have sketched out all the photos. This is step one.
Step two is to let the images percolate in my brain.
Step three is to sit down with some clay and fiddle about for a bit.
