Soma Ranch is 8 today! We bought a new hunter green hammock and 2 fancy parasols to celebrate! Joe is crafting his skills at making things out of used cans. Here he created a "mold" out of wood, "dremelling" the letters and numbers, in mirror image, into the wood. He then poured molten pure aluminum (from his home made kiln) into the mold, creating instantaneous fire of many colors (very dramatic), before immersing into cooling water.
The result is a striking multicolored metal sign, that looks like wood! FYI Joe says "I did the S backwards on purpose, they often did that on old signs!"
