3 and a Half Handmade Minutes

Cold and rainy out in the studio, but gotta keep moving forward or work starts dying on the shelf.

Magical how the designs reveal themselves! I couldn't quite tell, but are the crows pressed in deeper than the surface? Beautiful Work!

Carter, good eye... the crows are pressed in deeper. I just recently started using the plastic ends left over from cutting out billets of paper stencils too create recessed designs in the surfaces.
I like where this is headed!

That's an interesting perspective for the viewer.. I feel like I'm working on your pottery. ;) I really love watching these... magic! :)

Love it! Great to be able to watch the process and see the images emerge.

fun video joel, when i was in college my friend and i used to tape our paper to a drawing board and when we were done we would peel the tape off to reveal a nice clean border around the piece and see the drawing for the first time. we referred to this as "pulling off the tape" and used the phrase to describe the last act of any phase of work that allows us to see what we've been anticipating. your pulling off of the tape (stencils) makes me think of that and i can see why you like to do it so much.
