I've finally knuckled down to work on the next raft of pieces to be exhibited, today concentrating on making the white hand of Cupid which will be reaching down to awake the Cold Genius from his slumbers!

The original hand is a Victorian bog-oak brooch which I bought from my friend Simon Cavannagh in his Edinburgh antique shop. It is too large and too dark for what I wanted:

Cold Genius 1

So I scanned it with a 3D scanner and milled it out from buffalo bone in a smaller size:

Cold Genius 2

The original is about 40mm long the new version is about 30mm:

Cold Genius 3

More soon.
