copper links, pine path
L - Nikon / T - Nikon
I started another metalsmithing class for the winter months. I haven't worked with metal since being at the John Campbell school and it's nice to get back into it. Our instructor gave us an interesting assignment – to create whatever we wanted out of a bag of 16 copper washers. I decided to hammer on mine to create texture and even change the shape of some of the circles. This is what I have so far - a linked chain, unpolished and unfinished - a work in progress. / a new semester has begun and i'm starting to see the path i have ahead of me and appreciate the scenery as i pass through.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
