The New Paper Cutter & White Castle

A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend and I drove out with a trailer to Louisville, KY to pick up the Golding guillotine I found on Briar Press, thanks to the guys at
Hound Dog Press. Actually, correction, my boyfriend drove the entire way and back in one day, which was incredibly generous and superhuman of him.

On said trip, he also introduced me to White Castle hamburgers. If you've never experienced White Castle, which I hadn't in my 27 years, let me explain. They make tiny tiny hamburgers with cheese and onions. And they are delicious. Pillowy, melty, oniony delights. I ate four of them.

Anyway, here are some pictures of my new guillotine paper cutter, lovingly photographed in close up. It's the first large piece of equipment to call my own so it means a lot to me. Just 20 tons more cast iron and lead and I'll have a full functioning studio!

Epic Equipment

I've been at Penland School of Crafts as a Core Fellowship Student for about a year and a half now. It's a two year program, so soon I'll be packing up soon enough and starting up shop. A scary but exciting thought. What this means is a hardcore search for any equipment within a reasonable distance. And thanks to Briar Press, this big beautiful machine will soon be gracing my life with its commanding presence. See you soon, Golding paper cutter! I look forward to meeting you and your blades.
