A couple of works in progress on ye old bench. I've been experimenting with the texturing technique that Mr Tsosie taught us. The pieces probably don't read well since they don't have a patina yet, which will make the rough parts dark.

The piece with the bail was trying to reproduce a motif I use in beadwork in silver. But it ended up looking like the embroidery on the edges of the textiles the Pueblo men make. To boot the overall shape echos southwestern petroglyphs. Not what I wanted. So, I'm at a loss with it. Soldered on a tube bail and left it.

The other is a insert for a belt buckle. I was really pushing the level of detail, I can get as a comparative novice with this technique. Not sure it works. The face is hard to read. Oh well.
