Modern Alchemy – The building of Ignatius The Firepig.

Author: | Posted in Art, Steampunk, Video No comments

You may recall Patrick Johnson’s marvelous short film Granite Copper Motor from earlier this year. Recently Patrick spent some time with my friends David, Dennis, and Brady, while they designed and constructed a steam boiler dubbed ‘Ignatius the Firepig.’  I do so love Patrick’s calm and peaceful treatment which is the antithesis of todays frenetic, falsely dramatic, cable television style.
