What turned you on to Art, Remixing or Crafting?

by Derrick Douglass

May 15.2011

I was not the best High School student.  I was a solid ‘C’ student.
But, I was at home Woodshop and Metalshop class.

Nothing less than an ‘A’.
I shined when I worked with my hands.

I wish I had known then that my future lay in wood, metal, fabrics and design.
I could have saves so much time.

This is the first major piece I created in my life. I made this clock in my 11th grade, circa 1985, Woodshop class. It is one of the best pieces I ever made. I gave it to my mom, Juanita Douglass, to thank he for loving me. When she passed, I reclaimed it.

It needs some TLC, but I’ll get fix it up soon.
