under the sea
This is a new clasp that Greg carved. I love it. Its a touch taller than a quarter, but not so small its fiddly to open and close.
Greg was on an underwater roll! Look at his articulated crab! Its so super cute! I have one in my pocket, because its small and realistic and makes me think of Hawaii and Azalea trying to smuggle a baby crab in her pocket.
Here's my koi pond, cast in silver. I think its a pretty clean cast, better in person (the glare is hard to focus around). We've got the whole gang bustling around like a kicked ant hill. The energy is amazing and the ideas are flying around too fast to catch. Most of the pieces I've been making probably won't make it to production, but that's the nature of making art, only about 30 percent makes it to the table. I have a method I follow, first I sketch, then sketch more. Then I carve, but not just from the sketches, because its so easy to be inspired when everyone is sitting around the table working. Anyway, we're having a great time creating art and making food (Greg has mastered fall-off-the-bone ribs and I'm in heaven!). Yeah, life is good.
