1/2" gauged, carved from a single piece of Reconstituted Jet stone.
SOLD, Carved on commission.
These were commissioned by the amazingly patient ~Phoenix-Cry
As always, the knotwork is the awesome creation of my husband, Phillip.
I'm not even sure what to say about these. They were difficult, but taught me things I wouldn't have learned any other way. I also count them as my best work so far. So I'm really proud of them, but I don't want to carve another hollow form for awhile.
And yes, they are hollow all the way to the start of the smooth area at the top. What I couldn't photograph right is that there is a little detail at the end of the spiral tails where I made a set of holes and a little hollow spot. It looks cool in person, but weird in pictures.
If someone really badly wants a pair in a similar style, the next pair starts at $600, and it'll take a year, minimum. Hollow forms are tricky, so you can't carve on them when tired unless you want a useless mess.
Woot! THANK YOU ^cakecrumbs
I never expected this would get a DD, so thanks!
Please be patient, I will answer all the comments, and while I'm too swamped to thank for all the favs, do know that I love getting them.
I don't judge, favs without comments get love too.
