I'm ready for my close up, Mr Demille...
The copper vase is now completed, we, obviously I mean Gavin, just got through doing the photography earlier today, but the images need to be processed before I can reveal all. In the meantime, by way of a teaser here's a close up of the surface of the vase after I patinated it....I'm a happy bunny :-)
I should have the final images on-line later today....I did some carving of white mother of pearl....to portray magnolia flowers, which are inlaid in the copper. The effect is quite pretty I think. The butterfly flying across from the other side seems to have worked too...at least that's what people who have seen it say. Intrigued....? I'll try not to keep you waiting much longer ;-)
