I had an unusual request the other day from someone who wanted an ornamental copper face mask for someone who has been shielding, to give them a bit of a laugh and as something to look back on in years to come.
Finally finished the copper barn owl sculpture. Nearly every 'feather' was individually brazed in place. The difficulty with brazing is that continual heat is applied to melt the brazing rod, which often inadvertently melts the brazing that's already been fixed, meaning bits that have been fixed in place can drop off! It's often frustrating! Here are some more progress pictures and the finished sculpture.
I've been working on a barn owl sculpture. It's slow progress as I've been working around other projects. Each 'feather' has been individually brazed in place and it's slowly taking shape. Here are some photos of the work in progress from the sketch, skeletal frame to the fleshing out.
I haven't posted here for quite a while, but that doesn't mean I've been slacking. Far from it. I've been busy just keeping on top of regular orders, so I've not had time to make much original stuff lately, but there are a couple of additions and more in the pipeline ...
I've been busy with various things at the moment, but I've made a few items that I'd like to share. These include a bird of prey sculpture, the wings of which move in the wind, a fairy, hare, spider, bird feeder and a raven. On top of this I've been busy fulfilling regular orders for Calla lilies, roses, bird baths etc. Remember if you want something unique making, contact me and I will see what I can do.
