Project: 10 Year



This was what I got for my husband on Christmas in 2009. At that time, I was learning how to weld in my sculpting class. I like physically challenging work so welding was very fun to me.

After I got the date to visit him and knew I will be there for Christmas too, I was thinking about the gift for him. Since I was a poor student, I couldn’t buy nice things for him. Having a talent for making things is very useful for this kind of situation.

I decided to make a big key with his name on it. I was not very good with detailed welding work yet, I could not make his name very sharp. But I made it’s tip extra sharp so it had a somewhat dangerous look to it.

He loved this key. He also amazed that I could weld. I promised to him that I will weld some small spots he wanted to fix on his old car when we go back to the U.S. Well, we have to see how that will turn out though.
