Between a never-ending cold and working like crazy for an event for my day job (that was last night), I haven't even touched any jewelry work. It's amazing how time just disappears sometimes. So, I thought I'd post another pic of some work I did when I was taking metalsmithing classes. The project was to make a belt buckle. But, as with most art classes, that could be interpreted however we chose. I chose to look at the tension between nature and modern civilization.
The quote is from one of my favorite books, a sort of collection of philosophical essays about nature and our connection with it. The sun is made out of an old brass gear from a clock.
