67

I already told you about it, I'm organizing a workshop on filigrees in Paris this summer.
it will take place at Gallery 67.
So I had to illustrate it. After about 20 hours of work, here is the result.




Just to be illustrative, a few heads are a good idea (I particularly like the one with the crown, what about you?).


There are still a few places left, if you are interested, contact me.

Black & White

You know my love of color. Well I was a little tired of doing things in black on a white background so I decided to change.
This time it's white on black background ;-)

Your are still here

This weekend, we celebrated a friend's birthday. For the occasion, I engraved a small zinc brooch reminding her of her year of birth.



And also some slate triangles to put in her garden.



And as I offered her the engraving of "you are here", I made another one for my garden.



For those who would still wonder how it is done, here is a little video where I am engraving the slate with my homemade tools

You are here

It is important to know where you are and to identify what is around you.
So I continue to engrave slate triangles that I place in my garden for crowd edification.

Chards that don't seem to want to go out...



Salads that are difficult to confuse with an elephant but you never know...



A sign to know where you are...



And another sign, to know where everything else is. It is written in Breton and means "all directions".

Virgilis Aenidos

I did a lot of things this weekend.
Few of them had anything to do with calligraphy.

I started to calligraph the Aeneid on the inside door of my workshop. At about 20 minutes per line, I'm far from being able to put it back!

Slate is not bad either

Yeah, because granite's still hard. And when the slabs are already in place, it means making his engraving on his knees which is quickly painful.
So I resumed the slate engraving started last fall and abandoned because of cold.
The pattern is finished, all that remains is to dress it with filigrees. A few more hours of work ahead!
