Just back from a long weekend in Brighton.

 

Brighton Rock

 

And back into the workshop for more on Fashion:Victim. Both the ball elements are nearly ready for development into finished pieces. The hinges are completely on one and the other has the main structural elements for the hinge in place - should be hinged tomorrow:

Additionally, I've been working on some cast elements for these, including the "talons":

And the little holders which will hold the recycled rare-earth magnets (from discarded ultrasonic toothbrush heads) for use as catches for the spheres:

 

Fashion:Victim - In Memoriam ALMcQ (WIP 33)

 

These were drawn in Rhino and milled out for casting. You can't really see on this photograph, but the setting is shaped to conform to the radius of the spheres.

 

Next problem: how to model this life-sized pewter hawk's foot in hollow silver!

If you have time, maybe you could take a look at Jade's question with regard to carving:

She is a glass artist and never did any metalsmithing but needs to do this now for her project. Maybe you could give her some advice? Thanks.

Thanks, Brigitte. I love seeing other peoples' work in progress shots, so I think that it is only fair to post my own! Glad you like them.

As to the hawk's foot, I am going to make a silicone mould of it in small sections and fill it with carving wax, then hollow the sections out and re-assemble them. The shape is a bit wrong here as it is just standing and I want it to be gripping.

Thank you for your posts. Your blogs speaks to the craft nerd in me, this is all "like so" up my alley. More more more.

Hmmm. Wished I could help with the pewter hawk's foot. Maybe a question for your Thinking Out Loud group?
