Studio Time with Silas

Michael Daniel

It's summertime, which means that Silas is on break from school and I get to spend time with him at my studio. Yesterday, Silas and I finished a project that he had started last week. I try not to involve myself too much in his design process: I let him find his own materials in the studio, figure out how he wants the pieces to fit together, and how he wants the final piece to look and function. I let him do all of the work himself except for the bits that obviously require adult supervision (e.g., if a piece of steel or wood needs to be cut). Silas tells me exactly where he wants the cuts to be made by drawing on the wood with a pencil or on the metal with chalk.

Here's Silas' presentation of his first completed design. He did a great job!

Silas and I will be doing more projects over the next few weeks. We're having a lot of fun with this so we may even turn it into a weekly blog post.
