knotwork

Not much time for calligraphy at the moment.
Just a little knotwork carved on a slate block.



The block is about 10 cm side, the pattern is taken from George Bain's book.

Water, Fire, Earth, Air

I continue to tidy my workshop up and I found one of my first engravings on slate with a little watercolour to highlight the various elements.



It was a few years ago and, at the time, I didn't like it.
I don't think it's so bad after all, what do you think?

Alleluia

An old piece of work, not posted here yet.
As it matches the theme of my next workshop in Paris, I thought it might be appropriate to show it to you today.

Knotwork

While cleaning (once is not usual) my workshop, I fell on some slates of the Monts d'Arrée, full of rust. And as I had a little time, I took the smallest of them to try an engraving and I chose a knotwork pattern from the book of Kells.








The top layer of the slate has left in places, removing the rust color on fragments of the pattern but I'm not too dissatisfied with the result.

Skull

As I was digging in the garden, I came across this skull with its very elongated shape. It must be an alien remnant. That's all I can think about !



... Well, I confess, I sculpted it out of a pebble fragment. I added a magnet behind his head so it can decorate a fridge ;-)
