Even your unfinished carvings have a style about theme. Definitly like these.

I really enjoy your new takes on traditional design. That's the only way for art to evolve. We are blessed to have so much technology in tools to speed up the creation process or make finer details compared to how the ancients did back then. It only seems right to change it up a bit. I wonder what the ancient artisans would make had they had their hands on such tools.

Great job Benz

Ben -

Every time you dig into that box to revisit a seemingly 'throw-away' piece -

- that savior instinct in you goes into overdrive and then magically, seemingly overnight BA-BAM !!
CLASSIC BENZART

I must express I like your latest focus with the lapidary approach in your art.
Stone = awesome in my book.

Do I dare suggest that possibly...years of wood carving satiated your interest within the fibrous realms?

Bows,, Thanks, yes the skull is a shifter heading to the bottom of the world

Thanks Laojia, I'm glad you like this guy and I'm glad to be back!

GMAN, Raaghttt

Conga, No pelicans but I was about gone back to somewhere. Still not the same without the laptop but hey I'm feeling better.

Hey Babs, Yeah, I have no room to talk about cold weather as I Know there are some out there much worse than I am, but hell I Pay for warm weather and short cold snaps and we got short changed a bit. Glad you like.

Thanks Amate, Benzart Magic?? If I had some it got frozen to death I think

Blowfish thanks,, we can talk about that.

Hiltiki, I'm Sorry my missing effected you, I didn't mean it to. I'll try to remember next time to warn you first??

Mooney tiki, thanks I appreciate that. Thanks too for the visits to the Benzart shop, it helps light the fire, speaking of which, don't you have some new stuff to post? C'mon, give it!!

Aloha, thanks, Friday is good, which one, the 26th or the 5th?

JP, Thanks

Thanks Coconutzo, I'm sure an ancient artist would come in and take about f minutes to et used to the tools then proceed to make us all look bad and I'm sure he would have a ton of fun!


Surfin, you be funny, Thanks

TikiG, Thanks for the kind words, yes that box holds some Magic for sure. the lapidary call is strong and so is the bone as well as the wood one. Those masters are constantly fighting for my attention and I must say I'm not finished with wood yet, Thanks again.

LLT, thanks, you are always so encouraging as well as inspiring with your own works Thank you

Well the black jade is finished except for the cord:
