  1. This is one of the most challenging piercings I have done. It's an example of a certain type of project where you don't finish the piece, the piece finishes you. I could work many more hours on it but an end point presents itself when you pull back and say, "OK, I'm done". It's not exactly saying "good enough" as in settling for something less than is desirable, but more like an acceptance of ones place in relationship to perfection. The subject is Hemlock needles. These needles often release in June around here and can be seen in large quantities where they have drifted down to the ground or gathered in rocky crevices carried by water. This piece is in copper with three needles added in 18k gold and is part of a larger sculpture in Vera wood. The first step was drawing a pattern from Hemlock needles I had randomly cast(as in thrown) against the nearly finished wood-carving which will host the needle carving. I drew these directly on the copper as seen in the lower photo. This was designed with some strength built in so the piece would hang together. The smaller photo is about scale(60mm long). I'll put up other progress pics later.
