Ark of the Covenant

5 Jun

Two years in the making, my third Ark of the Covenant replica is nearing completion. I’ll just attach red velvet or felt to the insides of the rings for the carrying poles.

Portrait Bust: Licia

5 Mar

This portrait bust of Licia is done, unless I decide to add ornamentation to the pedestal. It’s made of pottery clay, so I’m debating whether to fire it before making the mold–which entails many hassles– or simply make a mold from the dry clay, which will likely┬árequire cracking up the sculpture. I’m inclined toward the latter.

Ark of the Covenant (a work in progress)

23 Feb

I’ve attached the angels and Mercy Seat to the lid of my Ark of the Covenant replica, and primed it with black automotive primer. Now it’s time to attach the shittim, the acacia or maybe cypress trees that demarcate the sacred space on top. The next job will be refining the main box, then making the carrying poles and painting it all gold, inside and out.

Sun Face in Progress

16 Feb

This will be the center of a sun face I’m sculpting as part of a large outdoor wall hanging. It will also have a smiling crescent moon, a harp, and cranes in flight.

I made an art nouveau-style doorknob

12 Oct

This is a door handle inspired by art nouveau / jugendstil asthetics, which I will cast in concrete or metal. It will attach to a gate or door with four to six screws.

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.
