INCREDIBLE PIECES OF ART, USING METAL. AND HE’S ABOUT TO FINISH UP HIS LATEST MASTERPIECE. BETHANY CROUCH JOINS US FROM SACRAMENTO. YES. WE ARE LIVE THIS MORNING WITH THOMAS RAINY AND WE HAVE HIS ASSISTANT CRAIG, WHO IS MARKING IT. CRAIG, HAVE I GOT IT IN THE RIGHT SPOT? THOMAS. WHAT’S NEXT? LET ME MAKE SURE CRAIG IS GOOD WITH THIS. WE’LL BREAK OUT THE TORCH. BREAK OUT THE TORP — TORCH. SO THIS IS A PIECE THAT WAS COMMISSIONED. GOING TO BE GOING OVER TO NAPA. A WEDDING PRESENT. A LATE WEDDING PRESENT. AND IF YOU GIVE IT A LOOK, YOU’LL SEE IT’S KIND OF LIKE TWO FIGURES. AND I’LL SWING OVER HERE. CAN YOU SEE THIS RING POSTED UP ON THE TABLE. YEAH, YEAH. TAKE A LOOK AT THAT BAD BOY. THAT RING IS GOING TO BE GOING ON THE LOWER OF THE TWO FIGURINES REMEMBER BUT IT’S BEAUTIFUL, THOMAS. I LOVE IT. HEY. HE HAS GOT THE BLOWTORCH. READY TO ROLL. READY? YES. I AM READY. SO YOU’RE GOING TO BE SECURING THE METAL TO THE BASE, RIGHT? WHAT WE’RE DOING NOW IS THE PLATE IS A HALF-INCH PLACE. WE’LL BRING THE TEMPERATURE UP SO IT’S A LITTLE EASIER TO WELD. STILLSTEP BACK. YOU HEAD DOWN THAT WAY. AND I’LL LET YOU KNOW, THOMAS IS ONE OF 150 LOCAL ART ARTISTS WHO ARE OPENING UP THIS WEEKEND. IT’S PART OF AN ANNUAL EVENT EVERY SENATE. WHERE THEY KIND OF GET A FEEL FOR WHAT THEIR WORKSPACE IS LIKE. THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE PIECES YOU’LL BE ABLE TO CHECK OUT THIS WEEKEND WHEN YOU COME TO VISIT THOMAS’S STUDIO. HE’S LOCATED OFF OF C STREET IN DOWNTOWN SACRAMENTO. C AND 14th. TYPICALLY, THIS ISN’T REALLY AN AREA WHERE MOST PEOPLE WOULD JUST STUMBLE UPON. WHICH IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT THIS OPEN HOUSE WEEKEND MEANS SO MUCH TO THE ARTIST. BECAUSE A LOT OF THE WORK COMES IN FROM COMMISSIONS. LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, THIS PIECE. SO THOMAS, CAN I INTERRUPT YOUR FIRING FOR JUST A MOMENT HERE? ALWAYS. WHEN WEEM COME IN — WHEN PEOPLE COME IN. WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO EXPERIENCE FROM YOUR OPEN HOUSE? WHAT DO YOU WANT THEM TO SEE? I WANT THEM TO SEE THAT THERE’S A LOT OF REALLY PROFESSIONAL WORKING IN SACRAMENTO. THEY HAVE TAKEN A GIANT JUMP HERE LATELY. WHICH HAS BEEN FANTASTIC. I’VE BEEN DOING THIS AS A BE JOFOR 20 YEARS NOW. JOB FOR 20 YEARS NOW. THERE’S A LOT OF US HIDDEN AWAY. IT’S A GREAT CITY. SUPER PROMOTION FOR ARTS. AND WE’RE JUST TRYING TO MAKE IT BETTER AND MAKE A LIVING. AND YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO COME. AND I’LL JUST SHOW YOU, WE’LL END IN THE FIRST PORTION OF HIS STUDIO, WHICH IS TYPICALLY NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. BUT THIS IS WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO SEE WHEN YOU WALK IN. AND JUST SO MANY LOCAL ARTISTS, OPENING THEIR HOMES TO YOU. LET’S END ON THAT SHOT. LOOKING GOOD. LOOKS SO COOL.
