Tom Malik has metal in his blood.When he was a little boy, he learned the craft by his father's side."Mom used to worry about things like me and welders, but basically doing lines on leaves, or slotting, or hammer things.Mr. Malik.xa0Father studied art before immigrating to Sydneyxa0At the end of 1960s, Mr. Malik said, "hexa0I think, "I want to make money with my hands and my craftsmen ".He started working with metals in Sydney,xa0One upxa0Business."Then he fell in love with the state of Tasmania, so after 10 years of lifexa0"In Sydney, he came here," said Mr Malik .".After arriving in tazhou, he bought Archer's "stupid" in Carrick and turned it into a new gallery.When stupidity burned down in April 5, 1978, everything the family had to work for was gone."I only remember because I was about six years old ......xa0Woke up the next morning and mom said dad was out all night because hexa0There was a fire on the phone, Ixa0"Remember, everyone is very upset," Mr. Malik said .".In the fire, Malik's father lost his gallery, New Guinea artwork, the perfect tool he came to customize for hours, and the place to run the business."A lot of things are basically irreplaceable," Mr Malik said .".After the fire, the gallery and workshop moved into the only alternative space, and the family's new home was quickly completed."Because the kitchen and everything is hard.xa0In the main room there, the lounge was part of the gallery, so we used to have breakfast, take everything off the table and have dinner, Mr Malik said: "Have breakfast in the morning, then the tablecloth, all the bowls, the monitor, everything will be restored and the lunch is in the workshop.
