|This is a strange one that I have struggled with for a while.|
It is going to sound strange, and would take a long explanation, but it is supposed to reference the constellation Scorpio. I'll type up an explanation when I finish it, but it has to do with rabbinical lore and some other arcane types of stuff.
It started, as all my projects do, with a very detailed plan:
|The sketch was on a shopping bag and read "make bird" above it. But there is some math here too.|
Then the sketch turned into:
It still needed something... so I added the Flower.
That is at least a little more balanced.
Then I etched the darn thing.
So the plan - at this point - is to add a clock. Off to goodwill and garage sales.....
|This one is the correct size, has a vintage cloth cord and is already cosmetically broken. I won't feel to bad, and it keeps time. Thanks and here is $4.|
Nearly a perfect fit. It will need a bezel to hold it, and then some sort of mounting. And I will have to finish the enamel. I learned a really good lesson through this project.... measure the kiln. It won't fit in my enameling kiln. So I will have to heat the enamel with a torch, or use a pottery kiln. Or something.
I hope to finish this project this spring. My professor hates it, so I do have some drive to complete it - other than just sort of liking it myself.
