I am currently working on a stone that I believe is quartz but its intense orange color and chunky texture remind me of orange marmalade. Thus, that is what I am calling it.
Here I have cut it into a tonge shape and started polishing it. At this point, I am leaving the sides flat. Not sure if I will leave them that way or not. The two slices on the right are from the same rock.
This is the same stone in the same state of finish only it is lit from above. It realy lights up nice.
Over the years, my artistic endevors have morphed several times. Each one feeding the next, I now feel that I have found my passion...Metalsmithing, specifically, lost wax casting. In addition to designing and bench work, I teach intermediate and advanced metals as well as lost wax casting. I am also availabe to teach workshops in the following markets:
Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; Naples, Florida; Pensacola, Florida; Mobile, Alabama and Fairfax, Virginia
