In September of this year the touring Bodywork exhibition, or to give it its…
PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
Going though my studio I found hidden treasures. Large pieces of jet, amber, turquoise, and stones from Rhode Island. Great
treasures were found today. I of
course had to immediately use some of them. I laid them out and decided to
carve a jet and turquoise sea urchin.
I am planning on making them into rings. I also thought I would make a small series of sea urchins to
help me get back in to the groove.
I did not have a studio for almost two years and I forgot how much I love to carve stone. It's just amazing. If there is one thing that
relaxes me it's carving stone. I do make quite the mess when carving but
there is nothing better.
My all time favorite tool to use is an extra soft bristle wheel with Fabulustre! Fabulustre makes the world right! It just works magic. Great,
great stuff. If you’re a jeweler
and you have never used Fabulustre you are missing out.
I will post pictures as soon as I have some completed pieces. This is one of me and the large piece of turquoise that I forgot about.
