An urn for my parents

Starting a new wood pattern for a project that is near and dear to my heart. Fortunately  my parents are strong and healthy. I'm going to make a cast bronze urn that will nest two vessels together. My intention is to decorate the surface with a tree. I'm using the Hoop and Tree iconography and may incorporate a forged bronze hoop to lock the halves together.

This is the roughed out pattern. I will be refining it, sealing it painting and then creating the surface design in wax. I'll post weekly to show you my progress.

Successful Surgery

I'll spare you the photos of my arm. The Ulnar Nerve and trigger finger surgery is healing well. It may be a couple more weeks till I can get back to work but looks like I'll have a complete recovery.

Dunbar Wisconsin Vet Memorial

Just returned from Dunbar Wisconsin. This is an eagle I created for the Veterans Memorial they are building in their town park. It is a wonderful all volunteer effort.
