With the spring equinox last week...the clocks going back, and the evenings suddenly longer, my thought turn to light!
When carving ivories, this (above) is how I check the depth, and the form of the piece. Holding it up to the light shows in the translucency of the material where the staining will go, and it helps me imagine how it will look....this one is the last part of Shari's necklace. SO hope you like it when it's finished!!
Now to Marias posts on show us your art..I have snapped some of my favourite pieces (to date...I am still working on my collection!!) and have started a wee set on the theme of precious objects...see it so far here.... I think this will be a nice way to remind myself to really look at all the things I treasure!
Look just how light it is (in my tidy room!!) at almost half past seven in the evening!! So lovely!......despite the rain, it really is beginning to feel like spring is on its way which will hopefully make for some more opportunities to 'shoot into the light' and post the results here .
I had a good day today, and got through a lot of work...ready for the big post out of orders on thursday...can you tell I am building up to the 40 min hell that is the post office queue!? (hehe). I like to save all the parcels up and then get them all away in one big fung shui sweep! Hope you all had a good day too....feeling ready for a sit down now!
Have a lovely evening all....xox
