We crossed the International Date Line and the Equator for this interview, so we’re made the most of our trip and asked follow-up questions for the first time. We’re posting half of our interview with meika today and the other half in a week.
We caught up with meika in his foundry where he pours molten bronze into molds. It was hot yet amazing to watch him work. If you want to see examples of his sculpture, check out his website. He has an amazing mind, as you will read shortly, and was able to answer our questions whilst working bronze and posting on Twitter.
Recently most of the hits on my website have been referred from
search engines for people searching for “Writer’s Statements” or
similar, so they must be happening ‘out there’ somewhere now. I never got round to writing a long writer’s statement, seems
more silly for some reason. I wrote mine directly in response to some bloggy heat I generated a couple of years ago over my self-published http://www.lulu.com attempt “.before Country”.
Be sure to read meika’s picofiction on PicFic this week. And come back next Monday to catch Part 2 of TEN with meika.
