And We're Back

Golding Pearl Improved No. 11Knocking on woodAfter months of chipping away at unpacking, we finally faced the task of piecing together the cast-iron parts that comprise the Challenge cutter and Golding Pearl. Now the press flywheel is spinning, and the studio is back to work with several projects waiting to hit the press.

Needless to say, I couldn’t have put the pieces back together without my husband. I’m a big believer in gender equality, but when you’re up against a half-ton of metal, I’ll take all the muscles I can get no matter which box is checked on the Census form.

Left on the to-do list: Oil the gears, sort furniture, fit a new draw sheet, order some plates, mix some inks, and print!
