I’m so sorry at a lack of new work to share with you but I did finish this piece, which I’m immensely proud of….

I started it last June and just finished it about a week ago….it took me awhile to work it out in the web of my brain….and make it work on paper. so here it is…If you want to see the whole creation of it, please look at the post on LMAJ….

But I also want to tell you a bit about it…

I buy alot of my metals from estate sales…these pieces not excluded. I love buying vintage copper stampings. Quite frankly, they just don’t make 18g copper stampings anymore…I mean, you can get the standard shapes but I bought these from an estate…and try buying 18g copper stamping now…it’s either impossible or stupid expensive for copper. but 18g. is my metal mistress. There is a heaviness to 18g. metal, I cannot deny…

So, I had this copper frontice you see now…I had 3 pieces which I stamped, and henceforth did some sawwork on….and they were left by the wayside, while in the meantime, I had a huge leg wound to heal from…I also thought they needed more of something.

So about 2 weeks ago, I woke up, carved out a middle piece from a vintage blue vinyl Elvis record…sawed the back from brass…held my breath to set the rivets, because I handset all my rivets…and there it is…..something that took me the better part of a year to finish…but in my book…worth it….
