Our new studio clock

I meant to post this a couple of days ago.  This is how we’re keeping time these days at the studio.

Lately, I’ve been finishing up several pieces I’ve had sitting around more or less complete – just lacking final refining / sanding (endlessly).  The weather has been pretty stellar a few days at stretch and I really enjoy spending some time with my dogs sanding on the back porch.

This first one I’m calling, Study In Texture And Scale.  I started working on this during my latest -event filled- trip back to Colorado.  The truck I borrowed broke down and we nearly had to bug out of camp because of a forest fire.  It turned out to be a house fire down canyon but, the fire danger was extreme due to the multi-year drought.

I finished that along with, Dali’s Axe before our open studios.  I spent several months working with electric grinder and diamond blades to achieve the appearance of a melting electric guitar in a largish block of calcite.  Seemed like a good idea that the time…

This garden piece is something I started working on after returning from Marble, CO with a small flake of Yule a few years ago (just before I headed off to Italy).  It had a lot of issues along the way but, it was time to do something with it.  Something about Winged Victory?  It began as an experiment in extreme fashion.

This last piece is a small piece of limestone that I’ve had kicking around the shop for a while.  This one’s untitled.  I believe it has something to do with connections.
