It's Friday, which means I can look forward to at least a couple of uninterrupted hours in the studio. I have been playing with modeling foam and some metal pieces, plus some scraps of earlier projects that I couldn't bear to throw away. Maybe they'll magically turn into something nifty.
This is the bowl I've been working on. See what I mean about too much gilding? I love the colors, but it seems a bit heavy. I think I'll start from the patinization process again and rework it from there. Otherwise, I like the shape of the bowl and the stitching detail. The inside is matte black with light gold gilded highlights which give an interesting sheen.
