Guillevic

I have read again for the umpteenth time the collection Du domaine by Guillevic.
I find new inspiration with each reading.

A slate engraving, filled with rust & wax for a poem about time
(home made translation : Here the time, believes itslef innocent)



and a poem on rain (and time), engraved on a terracotta pot, which I have already posted in video but of which I give you a still image (I recommend the video, the problem of the pots being their roundness which prevents us to cover their entire circumference at a glance).

smartphone

I succumbed to the bewitching sirens of technology and, not being satisfied with the existing offer, I decided to design a new smartphone myself.
First of its generation, the pineapple 1.0 has incredible features, the most important being the... paperweight!!!!!!!






Engraving on slate & rust filling for the logo.

If you also want to be at the cutting edge of science, don't hesitate to contact me, I can provide you with a specimen of pineapple 1.0 while waiting for version 2 which will benefit from even more amazing features at a price that defies all reason!

Don't wait any longer!!!

Titivillus

Perhaps my lack of inspiration is due to Titivillus, the demon that pushes scribes to make mistakes in copying. I saw him in my watercolor palette.




In spite of him, I keep scribbling, because I don't have any ideas.

More scribbling

A few more small initials, some walnut stain but also some blue for a change.








always in the same dimensions (about 2cm for the letter).
The color variations are due to the lighting variations during the shooting but everything is done on white watercolor paper.

Not inspired

I can't do anything, and I'm not sure I want to right now.
So I scribble to spend the evenings, a few small filigree letters.



again walnut stain, again letters that are about 2cm high....

On going filigree

 More filigrees, this time a little larger than usual.
It is only the preparatory work, the final result (from a material point of view) will probably be quite different.

A first picture in progress with the marker to give an idea of the size



And the finished pattern before moving on to the next step of the realization
