As I begin my new work in the studio, we can look back a bit - here are a few shots taken last month during the making of THE CHAPEL OF THE HERMITS.
Pouring the epoxy resin around the mud-wasp specimen.
Cutting the book leather for the back.
Shape drawn to be cut out...
...and glass chosen to fill the void.
The back before the leather gets attached.
The glass form.
Copper plate etched and about to be patinated.
Readying to attach.
The back leather panel, seen from the inside.
Attached in place - a secure fit.
