This one was hard to photograph. It turns out it's not really blurred, it's actually just kind of soft and fuzzy looking...I took several pix before realizing this - lol. Persimmon strike implosion and petals.

Well since murf is combining materials, I'll combine something too. I made a thread in the gallery showing them but wanted to show them here too. The glass is in a 9mm bullet casing.

nice geodes, Eric! The prospect of coldworking horrifies me although we have a fully kitted out coldworking room in our studio. If you really like cold-working you'd want to live there, diamond punty wheels of various profiles, linisher, flatbed grinder, cut-off saw, cork and cerium for polishing and a dremel tool with probably 100 different kinds of diamond burrs. Makes me shudder when I walk past there...

here's an end of month non-coldworked (unless you count sandblasting) african king bottle about 40 or so cm tall ...

Wow, beautiful stuff!

Coldworking is a necessary evil for me. I enjoy the initial grinding to reveal the interior, but doing all the additional polishing steps gets old. I would probably enjoy it more if I had a proper flat lap and wasn't doing all my work with grinding wheels.

Ouch. That sounds almost like torture Eric!

Craigslist is your friend! I check it daily for stuff I have on my wish list...my last good find was a complete boro studio including a bunch of boro color, a big double guillotine door brick kiln (240v) with a digital controller, and a bunch of cases of simax clear (3mm, 12mm, 12mm tube (x2), 22 mm rod, 22mm tube (x2)), a lynx and a variety of misc tools - all for about the cost of the kiln new...

thanks, just did a large fume pendant, pulled it down to a stringer, and did a wrap vortex style, i got some bubbles in there that i didnt want, and need to do more twist, but for a first one like that, it came out pretty good....

i've done a bunch of other stuff, but i really need better lighting to take some good pics... and we're cloudy here right now, so i cant haul it all outside in the sun...

OK, I just posted a reply with pics, but it didn't take it nor did it give me back my ability to edit the note.

Let's try this again!

-----------------------

Very inspiring posts. You're all so talented.

That African bottle is just amazing, and I love little bear pendant. It's all just terrific work! Thanks for sharing.

I'm almost afraid to post mine, but here it goes anyway.
