Artsy Fartsy Tuesday – Latest projects
Your typist today – MaryWe are trying to get some stuff ready for the upcoming art show summer, that’s why we are in Utah at the moment. Al still has his shop here and he can get some wood carving done. I have been doing some beadwork pieces, some traditional, some more contemporary. I have finished a couple of smaller wall hangings, I was pretty pleased with the way the last one turned out. I used some of the bronze splatters we picked up at the foundry where Al has his sculptures cast. These two had great shape. This first one obviously needed to be made into a butterfly. I beaded around the bronze piece, then added 3 different colors of copper wire to hang it from. This piece looked like a heart, so that’s what I made it into. I also beaded around the bronze, then added 3 different colors of copper wire to hang it from. Both of these pieces are for sale on Desert Raven Art for $55.00
I’ve also done several of these traditional Native American belt bags. We got the idea from one of our museum books. I have done them with different bead designs, and have sold most of them on Ebay. Al has been working on a couple of wood sculptures, and I will get pictures of them later when they are done. He also finished these awesome wood boxes, and this carved heart. All these pieces are for sale on Al Hone.com I love the heart, it’s the perfect size and the design is great. And quite reasonable at $40.
These boxes are nice for any special treasures you might have. This box is cherry, and of course hand carved. I really like this one, Bringer of the light. Al did the carving, and the painting. So cool. This is a small box with one of Al’s carved feathers attached. So, as you can see we have been busy. I guess it keeps us out of trouble. LOL.
