Greetings from Arkansas

Postby Peter B » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:51 pm

I have just dipped my toe into this community and i look forward to an enriched future. As a stone age archaeologist I got to study flintknapping with Don Crabtree and realized that understanding best comes from doing. I am a collector of Japanese and other antique arms. I love to understand how things come to be a where and how they are. To document the process of "collecting" I wrote a story that got published as "National Treasure." Telling stories is fun and watching people behave can be informative, but as an archaeologist you also have to address topics that can't be directly observed. To understand those topics I am drawn to experimentation. I like deformed planes of armor, vessels, and utensils. I prefer to make rather than buy tools. And in general I am more interested in the process than the product.
We recently move to to break the rhythms of life and to be closer to granddaughters. This involve shedding lots of materials I was sure I wouldn't need. Three months into retirement I find myself reestablishing a workshop and feeling the urge to create.
