Io

Updated: Nov 10, 2018

4 June 2012 So what does Io mean? It is the innermost of the moons of Jupiter. The name is a bit obscure and yet a bit literal for this piece, all at the same time. I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this Foundling. I really do like it and yet, due to my own skill level, its not a perfect as I would like. The draw pull is off center, the welds are a bit sloppy, the engineering not as elegant as I would like. So I am split. I need to remember that these Foundlings were never meant to be perfect. Like life. It's a good lesson.
