OK, so I haven't posted for a bit but it has been a little hectic around here. We had visitors from Vancouver Island and a few days later daughter Lisa arrived. Then daughter Sandra joined us for a few days along with Lisa's daughter Sydney and Sandra's son Erik.
Are you getting all this?
As well, the tourist traffic has picked up so I have been busy selling.
But since I have a fair bit of finished local stone, I thought I'd do something with a few beautiful slabs Vickie brought back from out west. So first she defined shapes on the slabs that she thought were the most interesting and then I cut them out, ground them to their final shape and polished them and here are the results. The first pic is a group of cabs made from an Australian stone called Mookaite that my Aussie friend Ted brought me on one of his visits. He was actually born in Montreal but lives there permanently now.
The next lot is cut from a slab of petrified wood brought to me from my friend Glenn Cook from Arizona. It too is extremely hard and takes a great polish that highlights the amazing organic patterning.
And finally, I finished a few more local pieces and a nice moss agate to round out the lot.
When finished, these pieces will be available in the store or on line at the Seawall Fibres web site but if a particular piece "speaks to you" let me know and if it is still available, I would be happy to do something custom for you.
