    Returning To The Fold

    Thank you. Still a lot to learn to get anywhere close to some of the fabolous works presented here, but will get there eventually.
  2. Have not been back here for a while, and enjoy all the diverse postings. While I kept busy over the years, I'm afraid my advance in skills has slowed down tremendously. So improvements are hard to come by. Last years Jade Adventure This years trail for Dragons (Australian Jade) Montana Agate Australian black oplal And the latest attempt getting some movement into Tiger Iron Thanks for looking, Kurt

    Nice imagination. Great to see your activity. People always say that they got no material to work with, yet seem to go blindly through their environment, as there are so many things out there that could be used to spur creativity.

    Thank you, Fire Agate is a challenge, but its fun material to work with because of it.

    Southern Magi

    I started a new chapter on Fire Agates. I finally found a way and the confidence to look at Fire Agate as a stone, not only at the fire. So instead of just cutting out the fire, I want to include the non-fire areas into a composition. No-one really wants the chalcedony, yet I find the resulting colors and combinations quite attractive. While still far from the brilliant creations that are shown here on regular basis, I finally got something that I'm confident enough to declare a progress in catching up. Started out as a Gypsy woman with headscarf, but then somehow did not get the proportions right and the face somehow turned into a man (partially due to the uneven thickness of the material). Anyhow, after the sex-change, lets call him " Southern Magi" Mexican Fire Agate 30 x 20mm Outdoors in the shaddows on a sunny day. Indoors, regular room-light during the day. Thank you for looking, and if there are any recomendations in regards to how to improve in future work, I shall be very welcoming to any ideas. Best regards, Kurt
