Ark of the Covenant

20 Nov

I’ve just completed an Ark of the Covenant replica for a friend’s church. I built a box and lid, then carved all of the side panels and ornaments by hand out of poplar and basswood before covering with gold leaf. It’s been an epic spiritual journey for me, unfolding in the arena of arts and crafts. Now, it’s finished.

Gargoyle Bookends

Back to the clay after a long absence. I haven’t quit the clay, but following my bliss will always take a back seat to putting food on the table & keeping the kids in iPods. The glaze on these turned out completely differently from what I’d expected. But I kind of like the way it burned in & created hue contrast.
