Making new friends

It's quite simple, you just need tools to work on stone, collect peebles and here you are ;-)

live filigree

Here is a short video of a filigree pattern I made for a demonstration.
The video speed has been increased, the real duration is about 18 minutes.
And the result is approximatively 3cm wide.

All the leaves...

...will want to be your pennons

It's the translation of this new poem by Guillevic, engraved on this new terra cotta pot.

The curve of the pot forbids to photograph the whole text at once, you'll consequently get 2 pics.






And, as a bonus one, a photo of the happy father with his last-born :-)

OLD STUFF - Guillevic

I'm going to post here the most interesting (or so I believe) works I made these last 2 years and that were only posted on the french version of the blog.
I hope you will like it even if it can be considered as old stuff.

The concerned posts titles will start by "OLD STUFF".

To begin with, here is a set of short poems by Guillevic (french poet of the XXth century).

I made them on paper, using the same script (humanistic minuscule) and the same design. The adornment in the circle is supposed to echo the text.

clouds

clock

leaves

bramble






trees


appearance

moon

Slightly longer

Once more, an initial adorned with filigrees (I promise, I'm going to work on other subjects soon). This time an F, a long one to create a bookmark.


And a set of little ones, to continue with my alphabets.


Slate engraving

To adorn my flower pots (when there are no flowers on the plants), I'm designing little boards made of slate, engraved with filigrees.

Here are the pictures of two of them during the engraving process.





And the first one once varnished, in the mint pot

Slightly larger

To fill an order, I made a new initial, twice as large as the previous ones. It's almost 4cm high but the materials and technics are the same.



As I was holding my quill, I also made other little ones, I just can't stop doing these :-)
