So I like the form... the plate/wall hanging format is nice and versatile. I added 3 small button like feet at the bottom, the top one with a hole through it so I can wire it up for wall hanging. I like the scale, as there was a lot of detail I wanted to get into this piece. The only thing that I don't like is that I see it and love it, but I want it to be jewelry sized too. But I don't really want to carve it again. So now I am thinking about ways I might be able to use the finished piece to generate an image that could go onto a pendant. This is a whole new way of looking at making new work that I am very curious about! I will have to start exploring ways of getting printed images onto small surfaces. Maybe some sort of image transfer or decal or printing process? Any suggestions are welcomed!
