the nightingale

First item in a new series dedicated to the poet Guillevic, a series I was already mentioning here.
A reworked NEULAND and filigrees, all with walnut stain and iron gall ink.
This poem is taken from the collection entitled Paroi.

Ready at last !

I have just finished the course certificates for Turin, only have to get on the plane and, this weekend, I will teach the filigrees in MiroModo.

I can't wait to get there!

Yummy shortbread

The first shortbreads made with buckwheat came out of the oven at Escopty's farm (it is in Coat-Méal, and they are on the market in Saint-Renan on Saturday morning and on Wednesday afternoon in Milizac, both being small towns in France, sorry if you're not in the neighbourhood)
With the careful care and expertise of Anne, the baker, this is what a buckwheat shortbread stamped with my apple tree stamp looks like

In addition to being pretty pretty, they are absolutely delicious: -p

Draft of happiness

I have already told you many times about Guillevic, a 20th century Breton poet and a wonderful goldsmith of words.
I read & reread more collections of his poems and decided to make a new calligraphy series.

Unlike the first ones, which were circular with a humanistic script, this time I go on NEULAND reinterpreted in square formats.
Here is  a fragment of a first draft (with a blurry photo and a wet ink) until I have something better to show.

And I invite you to take these two verses as your motto, as for me I will try to do it.
An approximate translation would be: "you don't have to be happy, but you can try"

More small letters waiting for the varnish to dry on another composition that has nothing to do with it.

Always filigrees, walnut stain and iron gall ink.

A few more initials with filigrees. As usual, made with walnut stain & ferro-gallic ink. & as usual, the letters are about 2 cm high

A rotten joke (I don't know how to make others), to be used as a wall lamp in my toilet.

Embossing on varnished handmade paper on a typeface model inspired by the IMPACT font.

I show you several different versions because, depending on the light, the result is really different.

The ends of the wall lamp are made of sanded and varnished cigarillo boxes.
