We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

The creative process includes many changes

 Here are the major changes I juggled around for weeks. The top two images here are what I thought I wanted and working from my sketches, I can see they too have alterations. My original sketches show a fish above the branches rather than the straight tube.
 The cut out of the Heron on the back has stayed relatively the same. The only change as you might be able to see below are the hand etched grasses near the bottom.

I just took these images to show the differences from the original piece. The center silver bead moves between the two small posts. I'm making the chain and including black onyx beads for accent. I believe the new design is simple enough to allow this type of chain. I had planned to use a commercial chain which would run though the tube (above), however with the design changes, I once more find myself creating my own chain.
I'm happy with the results. What do you think?
