Tree Ring, and Eggs


The green is a ring that is almost finished, carved in green wax to be cast into silver. I might use a bit of enamel with it. The silver ring is a finished master model that was originally carved into wax. I have some recasted tree rings... they still need to be cleaned up and liver of sulfur added to bring out the forms. I just got impatient and decided to post a picture of the model. Plus I wanted to see what the eggy wax one looked like. Sometimes seeing a picture of something I'm working on gives me a different perspective.

that's awesome, i've always wondered how rings were made. and i never knew that wax was involved. the silver ring is very pretty!

Thanks! You can fabricate rings (that is anneal, bend, and solder metal) as well as carve them. I'm essentially a sculptor gone small.

I love the tree ring. Great details. It looks like a puzzle ring I once had.
