I am a mess-maker. Sawdust happens. But some days the dust hangs thick as a wool army blanket in the air. Scary stuff. I worry about little Zaydee who insists on being near my side while I work. Combustion is a possibility.
The solution isn't as simple as the hood-systems on stationary tools in cabinet-making shops. I move around too much during the sculpting process. My heat would blow out with the sawdust with an exhaust fan. An air-cleaning filter system would be good. I imagine the solution would be a hybrid of systems. But right now the new sculpture series is taking all of my financial resources (and then some). I will either have to be successful enough as a moola-making artist to implement a system or successful enough as a public figure in the art world to have a sponsor put a system in. While making moola is part of my plan (someday - somehow) I like the idea of a sponsor stepping in to figure out the puzzle. How cool would that be?
Meanwhile. I would say, "I grin and bear it" but actually I try to keep my mouth shut. :)
