Hey Peeps,
Sorry I've been away from the bench so long, haven't really been feeling great, BUT I Have been teaching a stone carving class one day a week and here's a little KU face I've been working on there carved in Botswana Agate.
It's not much and believe me I need it as much or more than anyone else..
No promises right now about things to come But look for more soon!








"magnifique" as usual, have u made any video tutorials about inlay ?

That's so beautiful Ben. Straight to the core revealing the rocks history in layers and making a new beginning where a rock becomes a special treasure. Wendy

Thanks Wendy, it was fun working in this strange stuff!

Thanks ToddVegas, and Welcome to TC! I think you're the first to notice the Octo similarity, definitely looks like the tentacle from the depths of hell on an ear too!

MATT, Thanks, Nice to see you here too!

Aloha, yeah they get beat up a bit this time of year!

Ben,these guys are fantastic! I cant even think of try'n to carve anyth'n
at that scale,as be'n as prone to injuriesas i am I'd have no fingers in no time.
I broke my hand again just recently but it's com;n good and I'm back on the chisels
now.Cheers Watango
