Electrical Sale

Closing down US studio sale – all electrical equipment must go!

The USA voltage is 110, and Australia’s is 230. This means I’m getting rid of a lot of cherished equipment. We’ll start with the big one, and work our way down:

PUK 4.1 Micro-welder SOLD

This machine is a workhorse, and had been recently serviced by the PUK US distributor in Chicago, so he is being kind enough to offer a 6 month warranty on my 2nd hand machine. What a guy!

$3250

Comes with a new set of 0.5mm electrodes and in its original packaging with 2 alligator clips and a set of pliers and an extra electrode grinding wheel and of course the regulator. Bought new for over 5k, it is the version for which you can also purchase the tack foot pedal, and is the full version, rather than the new US only abbreviated model, the C440. And if you’re in the Seattle area I’ll throw in a 1/4 tank of argon. You’ll be ready to weld in moments!

If you’re not in Seattle I’ll make up the disappointment of not getting the argon tank by throwing in free insured shipping to anywhere in the contiguous states. Please contact me at blog@melissacameron.net. I’ll see to the emails in time-stamp order.

OK, and now in order of the gallery (the only other piece I will ship is the Proxxon mini drill press):

Hammer time

My work for the Artist Trust Auction, coming up later in February.

Point Line Plane brooch iv, 2013

You can touch this. If you go to the Artist Trust auction (Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the Fisher Pavilion, Seattle Center) you could even win it! The menu is up and the artist works already online look good. Just sayin…

And on now:

I am very pleased to have my work Ruchnoy Protivotankovy Granatomyot (or RPG) in this exhibition, which, as the exhibition media tells it, “drew over 1,000 submissions from 8 countries around the world. Juror Perry A. Price selected 70 works for exhibition at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center including works from 27 states in varying media including metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, fiber, glass, and mixed media.”

31st annual Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition & Exhibition
Meadows Gallery, Patterson-Appleton Arts Center
Opening Reception | Friday, February 2, 6 – 8 PM (Artist Awards at 7 PM)
February 3 – May 5, 2018

Recognized as one of the premier craft exhibitions in the country, Materials: Hard + Soft began in 1987 and was originally initiated by area artist Georgia Leach Gough. Now in its 31st year, the exhibition opens to international artists as we celebrate the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media.

Yep, pleased as punch!
